The city of Kerrville municipal offices and the Butt-Holdsworth Memorial Library will be closed Thursday in observance of Independence Day. Municipal offices and the library will resume regular business on Friday.

All city parks and facilities — including the Olympic Pool, Carver Park Sprayground and the Parks and Recreation office at Kerrville-Schreiner Park — will remain open on Independence Day.

Louise Hays Park, although it will be open to foot traffic, will be closed to vehicular traffic with the exception of legally marked handicapped vehicles. This closure is in conjunction with the Robert Earl Keen’s 4th on the River event that will take place in the park.

For more information about the event, which features live music, family-friendly activities and vendors, visit www.robertearl

Kerr County Courthouse and other county-operated offices, such as the tax office  

in Ingram, will be closed Thursday. County offices will resume normal business hours on Friday.

Also due to the holiday, the county elected officials’ meeting that would normally be conducted on Thursday is scheduled instead for today, starting at 9 a.m. in the first-floor courtroom at the courthouse, 700 Main St., in Kerrville. 

On the agenda for commissioners in that meeting are normal “housekeeping” duties, such as paying regular bills, considering any necessary budget amendments, approving payroll for county employees, hearing department head reports, etc. 

The meeting is open to the public. For a look at the agenda (or any county meeting agenda) online, visit: and find the July 3 date agenda by scrolling to the bottom of the list.

The next regular Kerr County Commissioners Court meeting is scheduled Monday, July 8. The agenda for that meeting will be posted online before the weekend.


The Kerrville Daily Times office, 429 Jefferson St., will be closed for an official observance of the Fourth of July holiday on Thursday, reopening for business as usual on Friday morning.

There will be no interruption of service to readers, as they will receive their Thursday edition as usual.
