Hays County Commissioners Court voted today (March 16, 2020) in an emergency meeting to extend the disaster declaration issued by Judge Ruben Becerra on March 15. By state law, the extension will be for 120 days, unless rescinded or extended by the Commissioners Court. The declaration allows Hays County governments access to funds and resources that might be required while the coronavirus is affecting lives, businesses and most aspects of everyday life. Court members will also continue to reach out to local businesses and Chambers of Commerce to understand what programs might help owners and employees.
