Over the past two weeks, we have seen a disturbing increase in COVID-19 cases in Lytle and its surrounding areas. Therefore, the emergency management team has requested that the city hall staff take turns working at the office. This is being done to prevent the entire staff from going down at one time and disrupting city services. We ask everyone’s patience as we go through the month of July without a full staff on any given day. We are hoping like everyone else that this pandemic will end soon and feel we have to try and do whatever we can to help bring the COVID numbers down. If we all do our parts, maybe we can return to some normalcy in our lives.
