Ask The Mayor

D.J. Ory, Mayor

Q. - Why is there no city ordinance for how far away a registered sex offender needs to live from a child safety zone?

Answer - Thanks for your inquiry.


The City of Terrell does not currently have an ordinance restricting the distance that a registered sex offender may reside relative to a child safety zone. There is no law in the State of Texas that has been passed mandating any such residency requirements or prohibitions. Under existing law, no ordinance can be passed that would prohibit a registered sex offender from living in the home of their parents, spouse or other relative or on property they own.




D.J. Ory, Mayor
