Important Message from Mayor Perez
Angleton Residents-the city is monitoring the COVID-19 situation within our jurisdiction and around us. As of now-there is No confirmed cases in our city. I have been in daily contact with my emergency management coordinator and city staff. I have been in contact with the county judge and his emergency management staff as well. I have been in contact with many business owners and residents as well. We are in a situation that is totally new and never experienced. I have had many questions and concerns on what is our next step—but being sensitive to our needs, residents, and small businesses. I will have conversations with others tomorrow, and the next day or so, look to see if CDC guidance is getting tighter.
I did get on the Governor/County Judges/Mayors Conference call this evening. From the sounds of it, we could be acting on more aggressive actions to combat people’s interactions. I appreciate your patience and respect for all the decisions that we will have to make to help protect public health.
I assure you, we are not taking anything lightly.
Please keep a lookout for city social media and my social media account as well.
We will get through this.
Angleton Market Days Canceled
Mayor Jason Perez announced on Wednesday, March 11, 2020 that Angleton Market Days has been canceled due to concerns about COVID-19. Please see his taped message on Angleton Market Days Facebook page. The City of Angleton team takes this decision very seriously and places the health and safety of both vendors and shoppers above everything else. We will be moving the applications and fees for the March show forward to the November Angleton Market Days scheduled for November 21/22. If you are unable to participate in the November Market or have questions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
The City would like to address your concerns on the construction progress on North Chenango and Richmond. Due to the amount of inclement weather experienced over the course of the project, the project schedule has experienced delays (over 80 rainout days). As a result of these rain days, wet site conditions further exacerbated these delays as they compromised the accessibility and safety of heavy haul trucks and equipment, especially at the detention pond which affected the progress on the rest of the project. Detention must be provided to mitigate impacts to residents from the additional runoff prior to the installation of storm sewer or commencing the paving improvements. The Contractor has tried to mitigate impacts to the project schedule by installing utilities while access to the detention pond was limited. Based on current progress and the Contractor’s schedule, he anticipates the project to be completed by May 10, 2020. We will keep you apprised of any issues that may impact the project’s schedule. The City appreciates your understanding and would like to express our gratitude for all of your patience during this time. Please contact us if you have any questions at email@example.com
