From the Mayor's Desk...
School is back in session and with that comes more traffic, which is why transportation tops the list of topics covered in the Lakeway Current this week. A new traffic study has been approved by City Council and although this study may not help congestion this school season, it could help alleviate problems in the future. Mayor Cox also provides updates on the Comprehensive Plan that will help guide city leaders when it comes to creating infrastructure, land use, our parks, wildlife, historical preservation, and of course, transportation. The City is currently working on finalizing the budget, which includes discussion about the tax rate. Mayor Cox gives details on what to expect in the next few weeks. Read all about it in this week's blog edition of the Lakeway Current. Click here to read the entry and sign up for future blog post alerts.
The Right Way to Recycle
Recycling can significantly reduce waste that will not only harm the planet today, but could also cause problems for future generations. Although recycling trends continue to increase in the United States, some people are still unaware of what they cannot throw in their bins. Issues with equipment getting tied up with t angles and clogs caused by non-recyclable items frequently require the recycling plant to stop the waste processing line and clean out the machines by hand. By reviewing the guide below, you can play a big part in ensuring that our recycling process is a smooth and successful one.
