Ask The Mayor


Mayor Hal Richards

Q. - Today about 1300 hrs the emergency sirens were sounding....was this a drill?


I heard that the City denied Cracker Barrel restaurant a permit to locate in Terrell. Is this true? Surely not.

Answer - Thanks for your inquiry.


On the first Wednesday of the month, the City of Terrell tests the alert sirens. This is not done if there is a possibility of bad weather. Very creepy sounding, isn’t it?


As far as that Cracker Barrel rumor, that is totally bogus. I have been hearing that for years. Several years ago, Cracker Barrel had looked into a location but could not arrange a deal with the property owner.


The City works hard to attract and support businesses.



Hal Richards, Mayor
