When it’s colder than Siberia …
When you want to be safer …
“Safer 71” has a community update to let you know they’ve made progress in getting the attention of public entities and officials to make Hwy 71 safer. The group is calling for more enforcement, engineering improvements, and driver education on the stretch of 71 that runs from Southwest Parkway to the Blanco County line.
When you have a chance to pay more taxes …
Emergency Services District 8, extending west from Lakeway (and not into The Hunger Games), suffers from limited water and wastewater availability which restricts its ability to rely on sales tax revenue. Voters will have a chance to pay more taxes in exchange for much-needed service improvements.
When you don’t know who did it …
A Briarcliff man was shot on Sunday night, and authorities need help figuring out who shot him. There’s not much to go off here.
When it’s all about the GOOOAAAALLL …
When you’re like a bridge over flood waters …
I will annex you. Travis County was ready to move forward with a vote on the Great Divide bridge. The city of Bee Cave said hold on; we want to negotiate the possible annexation of the crossing. After the city’s vote on Monday, it is unclear how the county will proceed.
When you check the back of your freezer …
Let’s hope you don’t find rubbery chicken nuggets.
When you’re being watched …
On Wednesday, LTL’s Cathy Hale updated you with Lake Travis area projects to watch in 2019.
