Dripping Springs Approves Disaster Relief Program for Businesses

The Dripping Springs City Council adopted a Resolution to create a COVID-19 Disaster Relief Program for Businesses at last night’s City Council meeting. The Relief Program is designed to help local businesses affected by the coronavirus.


The Resolution was presented by the COVID-19 Disaster Relief Program for Businesses Committee, which was formed last month to provide input and suggestions to the Council on how to best help the business community. The committee looked at ways the City could help local businesses such as waiving various permit application fees, wastewater service fees, and provide additional opportunities for signage.


To that end, the COVID-19 Disaster Relief Program for Businesses includes the following help for local businesses:


  • Wastewater Fee Waivers:
    The City will waive one month of wastewater fees for commercial properties. Businesses must apply by June 26, 2020. Application link is below.

  •  Inspection/Permits Discount:
    A one-time 25% discount will be given on permit or inspection renewals, including food establishment permits,
    child/adult care, church and school establishment Inspections, and alcohol beverage permits. This is for renewals for existing businesses only and must be requested at time of renewal.

  • Additional Temporary Signs and Fee Waivers:
    Temporary Sign Permit Fees are waived until September 30, 2020. The City will also allow one additional temporary sign through September 30, 2020, on all properties in Dripping Springs.

The COVID-19 Disaster Relief Program for Businesses Resolution is in effect for a period of sixty days, commencing June 10, 2020, unless a different date is stated above for a particular waiver. The COVID-19 Disaster Relief Program for Businesses is not retroactive.


Dripping Springs Mayor Bill Foulds, Jr. says, “Businesses across the country, including many local businesses in Dripping Springs, are facing tough times because of COVID-19. While businesses are beginning to reopen, they are still facing an uphill financial road ahead. We want to do everything we can to support and provide relief for our local businesses that have been financially affected during this pandemic.”


Business owners may call the City at 512-858-4725 with any questions.
