In the statement Mayor Gunter applauded the HOA’s decision, stating, “I greatly appreciate the Lake Nasworthy HOA’s leadership and them taking a strong position as it relates to the health and safety of all of the citizens.”

““I applaud the leadership of the Lake Nasworthy Homeowners Association for the decision to postpone the Fourth of July fireworks show. I know this was not an easy decision to make.

The statement went on to remind residents of the recent proclamation by Governor Gregg Abbott which restricts gatherings of more than 10 people.
