Over the last several weeks, local officials have been in constant communication regarding the continued spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19) around the country and now throughout parts of Texas. As more information becomes available and the local impact changes, the City of Smithville along with local community leaders remain dedicated to safeguarding the public and limiting impact on our community. Although there are no confirmed cases currently in Bastrop, local officials are implementing precautions to preemptively negate further spread of this illness and ensure that we can continue to offer essential services to our citizens.
