Declaration of Local Disaster (Tarrant County)

Declaration of Local Disaster (City of Crowley)

In response to President Donald Trump’s and Texas Governor Greg Abbott’s issuance of public health emergency declarations for the nation and the state, and Tarrant County Judge Glen Whitley’s recent signing of a declaration of local disaster due to a public health emergency, Crowley Mayor Billy P. Davis has made a declaration of local disaster for public health emergency today, Thursday, March 19, 2020, for the City of Crowley to minimize the potential impact of COVID-19 (Coronavirus) in our community.

This declaration enables the City of Crowley to become eligible to seek emergency assistance, if needed, in response to impacts of the global outbreak of COVID-19. The City of Crowley is joining other area cities that have issued declarations to help combat the spreading of COVID-19.

To date, there are no reports of Coronavirus in the City of Crowley, and city staff is taking necessary precautions to keep it that way. This declaration of disaster by Mayor Davis will remain in place until further notice.
