In response to the current public health issue, Jerrod Jones, Mayor, for the City of Buffalo has issued the following statement: 

A Message from Buffalo Mayor Jerrod Jones – issued March 19, 2020:

Earlier today the City of Buffalo issued a Disaster Declaration, as many cities and governmental entities across the state have done. The declaration gives the city additional authority to react and manage under this unprecedented situation. It also helps ready the City for possible future federal reimbursement for our response efforts.

Also today, Governor Greg Abbott declared a State Disaster for all Texas counties to coordinate a response and launch preventative measures to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. The declaration triggers a coordination of state resources and support for local governmental agencies to protect the health of Texans.

The safety of our citizens and community is the top priority of the City of Buffalo. The City of Buffalo is actively monitoring the COVID-19 situation in close coordination with the state and other local entities. Rest assured, every precaution is being taken to ensure the health and safety of all the citizens of Buffalo.

As of MARCH 19, 2020, we have no knowledge of any reported cases in Buffalo or the surrounding community. As the situation evolves, we will evaluate changes in our approach and communicate those through the City’s website and other available means.

In the meantime, we urge our Citizens to remain diligent and follow the guidelines and rules established by the State and the CDC. While it may be a temporary hardship and inconvenience for our community, the health and safety of our citizens has to be our priority.

Jerrod Jones, Mayor City of Buffalo
