Public health and safety remain the City of Marble Falls’ top priority. After conferring with Public Health Officials, Marble Falls Emergency Management has made the difficult decision to cancel all City facility rentals for the next 30 days. Although there is no known case of COVID-19 (Coronavirus) within Marble Falls and Burnet County, the cancellations will help the community with the “social distancing” that is necessary to slow the spread of the virus at this critical stage. The City will continue to monitor the quickly evolving situation and will re-evaluate this decision daily.
This decision was not made lightly, and we understand the cancellations are extremely difficult for the community, volunteers, and partnering businesses. The cancellations apply to all City facility rentals, including the Lakeside Pavilion, Westside Community Hall, and the pavilions and Amphitheatre within Johnson Park. Some events may be rescheduled to a later date. Understandably, our guests have questions about facility rental refunds. A representative from the Parks and Recreation Department will be reaching out to discuss the options available. At this time City Parks will remain open for public use.
The health and safety of our community is our top priority, and while the decision to put renting City facilities on hold is unfortunate, we feel it is the right thing to do amid the spread of this virus.
We encourage you to refer to www.cdc.gov or www.dshs.texas.gov for up-to-date information on the status of the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) and to follow the prevention measures and personal care recommendations.
Thank you for your support and understanding. We continue to monitor the situation closely and will provide updates on the City’s website as they become available.
