24 Mar CORONAVIRUS PRECAUTIONARY ACTIONS TAKEN
To the citizens of Crowley:
As your Mayor, I want to express to you my concern for your well-being. We must, and will, get through this coronavirus pandemic if we all act responsibly. I also want to assure you that I remain in constant communication with the Acadia Parish OEP( Office of Emergency Preparedness), Police Jury, Sheriff, Chief of Police, and our First Responders. As orders and recommendations are handed down by the Governor’s Office and the OEP, I will make the appropriate declarations for your safety. There has been a confirmed case of COVID-19 in Acadia Parish, diagnosed as of this past Saturday evening. I will continue to keep you informed through the media. Please be aware that our City Hall, Rice Festival Building and MLK Center are closed to the public until further notice. City services continue to be provided and the functions of city government continue to operate. We will communicate and conduct business from 8:00 a.m. – 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, via U. S. mail, e-mail and phone. The departments of street, public works and wastewater continue to operate, practicing the safe methods and social distancing recommended by the CDC.
Please do not hesitate to reach out to me at City Hall by calling 783-0824. We have recently set up a mailbox at the front doors of City Hall for those who wish to drop off their written communication. The mailbox will be checked every hour during business hours and it will be brought inside the building after business hours. Thank you for your cooperation and patience during this pandemic. Thank you for taking the warnings issued by local, state and federal officials seriously. Please be safe and continue to pray for everyone.
Mayor of Crowley
