City, county offices remain closed Thursday


Due to the inclement weather and the forecast for more snow or ice on Thursday, Gillespie County offices will remain closed Thursday and Friday morning.

Offices at the courthouse, Pioneer Memorial Library, Annex 1, Annex 2 and the AgriLife Extension Office will be closed.

“Hopefully, these extreme winter weather conditions will move out over the next several days, and we will be able to reopen all county facilities next Monday, Feb. 22,” County Judge Mark Stroeher said. “We apologize for the inconvenience to the public; however, safety of our employees is our primary concern.”

City offices will also remain closed on Thursday.

City services and facilities, including the Recycling Center and Sanitary Landfill, will be suspended.

Garbage collection will be attempted, but the city is asking for patience, as crews are having to catch up for three days.

Officials say they will continue monitoring the weather and the road conditions for Friday.
