Welcome to Leonard!

News and Announcements

Dear Citizens of Leonard,

Please take a moment to reflect on the Proclamation enacted last night (03312020-1). The proclamation reflects Governor Abbott’s proclamation and those of the surrounding counties. The purpose of the proclamation is to allow the City of Leonard to enforce social distancing and control disorder, should it become an issue for our town. We have no desire to impose hardship on any person or displace any business, but it is imperative that we as a community, do what is best for the good of all.

Essential Travel Letters: We recommend any business, deemed to be an “essential business” as defined by state and federal agencies, prepare travel letters for all necessary employees containing the following information: Company letterhead, Company address, identification or description of the nature of the Company’s business as an “essential business” as well as the Employee’s role in the Company’s business.  It may also be beneficial to include the name of Employee, Employee essential job function, current Employee photo, Employee identifiers (Sex/Race/DOB/DL), Employee current home address, Employee's supervisor name and Employee supervisor 24 hour contact phone number.

If anyone has any questions, concerns or recommendations, please email me at TMcCalpin@CityofLeonard.net.

Thank you and be safe!
