Business Roundtables Next Week
If you're a Lakeway business owner or representing a business here in Lakeway, we want your input! As you are probably aware, the Texas legislature recently made changes to rules relating to building materials, which resulted in the City of Lakeway making changes to some chapters within our Code of Ordinances. It’s giving us an opportunity to update chapters related to Zoning, Subdivisions and Signs. We are hosting two business roundtables to talk about these updates and get your feedback. You only need to attend one of the event times that is most convenient to you. Lakeway businesses - your input is valuable to us! We hope you can participate in one of these two open discussions.

Time: 1:30 p.m. – 2:30 p.m.

Holiday Shopping Safety Tips
Theft, scams and burglaries are popular crimes during the holidays. By following a few safety tips, you can avoid being a victim and avoid common mistakes made during the holidays. The Lakeway Police Department has these helpful safety tips for holiday shoppers:

  • Stay alert and be aware of your surroundings.
  • Park in well-lit areas and be sure to lock the car, close your windows and hide all gifts and shopping bags in the trunk.
  • Avoid carrying large amounts of cash.
  • Carry your purse close to your body and put your wallet in an inside pocket or front pants pocket.
  • Lock your doors immediately upon entering your vehicle.
  • When shopping with children, teach them to go to a store clerk or security guard if you get separated and don’t allow your kids to go off by themselves.

NEW: Prepare for the 2020 Census

Our nation gets just one chance each decade to count its population.The data collected by the census determines the number of seats each state has in the U.S. House of Representatives and is also used to distribute billions in federal funds to local communities. The next census, scheduled to start on April 1, 2020 will require counting an increasingly diverse and growing population of around 330 million people in more than 140 million housing units. In order to ensure that everyone is counted, the Census Bureau will be hiring hundreds of individuals in communities all across the country. They are committed to assigning people to work in the community in which they live. You can help our community by spreading the word about the upcoming census now.

If you're interested in making some extra cash as well as helping with the process, visit 2020census.gov/jobs or call 855-JOB-2020.
