Mansfield Mayor Buddy Black released the following statement today, Thursday, March 26:
With the continuing spread of COVID-19 and keeping with the Governor’s directives, we have closed Mansfield City Hall, Mansfield Library, Mansfield Public Works, Mansfield Police Department and all city offices to the public. Calls to city hall will still be answered at 928-5552, Police Department at 928-5700 and Public Works and Water Department at 928-4606. Mansfield Recycling Center is also closed after Friday, March 27 until further notice. Mansfield Water Department drive-thru will remain open for payments and other water-related issues.
In keeping with protocol for closures, we now must add all City of Mansfield playground equipment in the City of Mansfield public parks. Walking, jogging and other activities are acceptable as long as group size limit and social distancing is practiced. It is unfortunate that we are having to have these closures, but we should adhere to what is being directed by the Governor. We will hopefully be able to resume normal activities in just a few weeks if we can all do our part in slowing the spread of this terrible virus.
I will try to keep everyone informed of any updated information that the cit responds to.
Buddy Black, Mayor
City of Mansfield
