[ARCHIVED] City of Victoria delays opening times for nonemergency offices

700 Main Center exterior, City of Victoria 702 N. Main Street Visitor Information Center

All City of Victoria nonemergency offices will open at 10 a.m. on Friday, Feb. 4.

The City is delaying opening times for nonemergency offices because of a forecast of winter weather that is expected to create unsafe driving conditions. Residents should avoid driving in hazardous weather conditions or if there is ice on the roads.

Garbage and recycling pickup will continue as scheduled.

Restrooms in City parks closed at 12 p.m. Thursday and will reopen Sunday, weather permitting. Flag football games that were scheduled for Thursday evening have been canceled.

Residents should bring their pets indoors and wrap exposed pipes. Residents who choose to flow water through their pipes to prevent freezing should only allow a small trickle of water to flow from the faucet furthest from the meter. This will conserve water and help to ensure that the City can continue providing water service. If you experience a water leak and need help shutting off your water meter, contact Public Works at 361-485-3380.

The City has improved its technology contingency plans and made upgrades to equipment during the past year to be able to continue supporting critical services.

Mid-Coast Family Services will operate an overnight warming center will be open at Our Savior’s Lutheran Church, 4102 N. Ben Jordan St., on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights from 5 p.m. to 8 a.m. For more information or to make a donation, contact Mid-Coast Family Services at 361-575-7842.

Strong winds could blow down tree limbs and cause isolated power outages. To report a power outage, contact AEP at 361-573-2428 or download the AEP app at Do not call 911 unless you are experiencing an emergency.

The City has been regularly monitoring National Weather Service updates in coordination with the Victoria Office of Emergency Management. City officials are prepared to mobilize resources to respond to any impacts related to the winter weather.
