Even as Williamson County businesses prepare to reopen under Phase I of Gov. Greg Abbott’s new Open Texas orders May 1, county offices will continue to operate at a limited capacity through the month of May, according to an April 30 news release.

As a preventative measure to reduce the spread of the coronvairus, county offices and departments will continue to provide services in a way that limits in-person interactions including scheduling appointments, working remotely, and conducting business via telephone, email, mail, using technology and drop box services, until June 1, the release said.

County offices that are open to the public require everyone to have their temperature taken before entering the building. If a person is found to have a temperature of 100.4 degrees or more, that person will not be allowed in the building, according to the release. Hand sanitizer will be provided for use, and although face coverings are not mandatory, they are highly recommended to reduce the spread of the virus, the release said.

The Williamson County Justice Center, 405 Martin Luther King Jr. St., Georgetown, will remain open only for required judicial activities, the release said. Jury trials have been canceled until further notice, it said.

All four Williamson County Tax Assessor-Collector offices remain closed to the public, but do offer limited services.

  • Current vehicle registrations can be done online at www.texas.gov once the inspection has been done.

  • For other vehicle transaction information, VIN or license plate numbers can be emailed to [email protected].

  • For property tax information, account numbers or addresses should be sent to [email protected].


All transactions must be mailed to 904 S. Main St., Georgetown, or put in the drop boxes at each of the four tax office locations. Checks or money orders are to be made payable to Larry Gaddes PCAC, CTA.


The Williamson County Department of Infrastructure, located at 3151 SE Inner Loop, Georgetown, is closed to the public.

All County Engineer’s Office and On-Site Sewage Facility business will continue during the normal business hours of 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., but it will be conducted remotely through email and phone until further notice. Residents who call 512-943-3330 and receive a voicemail prompt should leave a message. Voicemail will be checked daily, the release said.

The Williamson County Parks and Recreation Department continues to monitor the effects of COVID-19 and officials have implemented guidelines to reduce the spread of the virus. While all county parks remain open, some changes have been made, including:
