EDITOR'S NOTE: The city secretary was incorrectly identified in a previous version.


DEPORT — As Deport city secretary has fallen ill, officials said City Hall will be closed until further notice.

The notice was posted to the city’s Facebook page Monday, announcing Nix is in the hospital for treatment of her illness. 

Residents needing to pay their water bills may do so by leaving payments in the city’s dropbox, the post stated. Free envelopes are provided at City Hall’s door. Late fees will not be added at this time, according to the post.

Water emergencies may be reported by calling 903-272-0035.

City officials said another Facebook post will be made to announce the re-opening City Hall.
