Coronavirus (COVID-19) has had a significant impact on our country and the entire world. Here in Dayton, our priority is maintaining City services while protecting the health and safety of our residents and employees. We have instituted protocols within our city departments to help keep the public safe and to fight against the spread of COVID-19 in our community. While these protocols might at times make doing business a little challenging, our goal is the health and safety of our community. Many changes have occurred in the last few weeks, there are more changes likely in the days ahead.  We'll do our best to keep you up-to-date as new information becomes available. Check back regularly and be sure to ask us questions if you have them.

If you're on social media, we recommend that you follow us on Facebook or Twitter, and check your monthly utility bill newsletter for information.

COVID-19 Update:

The State of Texas has seen the rise of new cases begin to slow in frequency over the past week, along with the number of recovered patients increase.

Governor Greg Abbott will announce more plans for “Re-Opening Texas” on Monday, April 27th. We encourage you to watch your local news media stations for a time when the Governors’ press conference will be held.

We are still encouraging social distancing and no group gatherings of more than 10. Face coverings or masks are not required but are encouraged as this virus is spread by respiratory droplets. (Note: beginning Monday, April 27, face coverings WILL be required in Harris Co., should you be traveling to Houston, Baytown, or the Atascocita/Humble area.)
