During a burn ban, avoid lighting a fire outdoors. Outdoor cooking is allowed if flames are completely enclosed in the cooking device. If you see a potential issue that may be in violation of the ban, you can reach out to  Lake Travis Fire Rescue   by calling (512) 266-2533 or by emailing inspection@ltfr.org . For frequently asked questions regarding what you can and cannot do during a burn ban, visit the Travis County website .

Lakeway Police Department Warns Residents of Scam
Residents have reported receiving calls from someone using the Lakeway Police main phone number (512-261-2800) in an attempt to solicit money and sensitive personal information. These calls are NOT from the Lakeway Police Department. Please do not give out any personal information or send any money/gift cards. If you receive a suspicious call, simply hang up.
Name Engraving Deadline Approaches
The August 15 deadline to submit names for engraving on the Spirit of Freedom monument is quickly approaching. Originally dedicated on the 50th anniversary of the end of World War II, the monument honors and provides a perpetual reflection of local residents who served or presently serve in our armed forces during periods of armed conflict. A tax-deductible donation of $160 is required for each name to be engraved for veterans of World War II through Vietnam. Post-Vietnam names require a donation of $175.

Starting Wednesday, Aug. 14, classes are back in session for all Lake Travis ISD students. Back to school can also mean back to traffic as buses return to our roads, parents hurry to get their children to class and teens drive themselves to high school. In order to keep our roadways safe, drivers are urged to slow down, be patient and pay close attention. Children should also be aware of their surroundings - especially when loading/unloading from vehicles and crossing streets. For more safety tips, visit the National Safety Council website. Teen driving information can be found on the City of Lakeway website.
