Benbrook City Hall, 911 Winscott Road, which has been closed to the public due to the COVID-19 pandemic, will reopen Friday, May 1. Normal business hours are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays. The Benbrook Senior Citizens Center, 1010 Mercedes Street, remains closed until further notice.
The action comes after the press conference Texas Gov. Greg Abbott held earlier this week, where he noted that his stay-at-home order will expire April 30, and presented a plan and an executive order to begin reopening the state on May 1.
City Hall staff and visitors will be required to follow social distancing guidelines, maintaining at least 6 feet of separation between each other.
Benbrook Municipal Court also will reopen to the public. Citizens are reminded that they can pay a fine online, without having to come into City Hall.
Benbrook Public Library, a separate entity from the City, will reopen May 1 with curbside pickup service, and the book drop is open now. The Benbrook Water Authority (BWA), also a separate entity, is currently closed and has not yet announced plans to reopen.
