As part of Governor Abbott’s “Open Texas” plan, beginning Monday, May 4, 2020, Community Services will begin to open for in-person transactions. Offices are open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. Due to the size of the Community Services lobby and to ensure safe social distancing, only one person will be allowed inside the lobby at a time.
The processing of permit applications for signs, garage sales, temporary food service, mobile food service, and solicitors will resume.
Application fees for Temporary Sign Permits have been waived for 90 days, beginning April 8, 2020, through July 8, 2020. After July 8, businesses will need to re-apply and pay fees to obtain a permit for an additional 90 days.
