Happy First Day of Summer!
It's the first day of summer! In perfect Texas fashion, it's going to be a scorcher. We are actually under a heat advisory from Noon to 7 PM. Stay hydrated!


Amended Water Resource Management and Conservation Ordinance
The Buda City Council approved an amended Water Resource Management and Conservation Ordinance at its June 18 meeting. The changes go into effect immediately.

Working in the Heat
While many of us work in air conditioned offices, others spend their entire work day outside. A big thank you to our Parks and Public Works employees for their hard work. Rain or shine, heat or cold, their work day doesn't stop. Our outdoor crews are taking the necessary precautions in this extreme heat.
