Mayor Doug Gaul has issued a Declaration of Disaster for the City of Hutto effective immediately.

Williamson County mandated earlier that there be no public events or gatherings with more than 50 people in attendance, so the City has canceled or postponed all special events, Parks and Recreation events, league play and Library events last week. That attendance number was updated Wednesday to a limit of 10 people after Williamson County announced the County's first cases of COVID-19 during a press conference today.
