Trail of Lights Canceled
For Friday, Dec. 20
Trail of Lights for Friday, Dec. 20 has been canceled due to wet conditions at Stagecoach Park.

City of Buda Construction and Safety Precautions
This is a busy time for construction in the City of Buda. We want to remind motorists and pedestrians to proceed with caution in construction zones and to please observe the posted speed limit signs. The City has received reports of motorists cutting through neighborhoods to avoid construction/traffic lights and speeding in residential areas. This is dangerous, not only to pedestrians, but for animals as well. The City has received reports of several animals being hit by motor vehicles. The Buda Police Department is aware of the traffic concerns and will increase presence in congested areas. Injured or deceased animals in the roadway can be reported to Animal Control at 512-393-7896.

As you prepare for holiday decorating, the City of Buda is here to help you get rid of any old, broken, or unwanted Christmas Lights! From now until Friday, Jan. 10, you can drop off your Christmas lights in a box/container or bundled up for recycling. Please drop off the lights outside the Buda Public Library entrance inside the Municipal Building located at 405 E. Loop St. We have provided a plastic drop-off bin just outside the library entrance. Hopefully, this will help organize your decorations and start off the new year while being environmentally friendly!
