Prepare for unpredictable weather with WarnCentralTexas

Don't like the weather in Texas? Wait a minute. It'll change! While that old saying is true year 'round, it's especially accurate during the spring season. The weather can be volatile and change on a dime.

Make sure you're prepared - and in the know - with WarnCentralTexas. WarnCentralTexas is the service the City of Cedar Park uses to notify you via text message, phone call and/or e-mail in the event of an emergency, severe weather or disaster.  This free service is part of the Capital Area Council of Government's Warn Central Texas network.  

While Warn Central Texas utilizes all publicly available landlines to make contact, you must register your mobile device, e-mail address, and other phone numbers at to ensure that you receive these important messages.  
Spring has sprung! 
It’s been said that April showers bring May flowers, and we know you’re working hard to get your lawn ship-shape for summer. Before you turn on that irrigation system for the summer, make sure your system doesn’t have any leaks, especially after that wicked winter weather we experienced in February.  

You can easily detect water waste, monitor your water usage in near real-time and set up alerts by signing up on our Digital Metering Portal. Have your water utility bill handy so you can enter your account number, including hyphens.  

And be sure to set your irrigation system to your twice-weekly designated outdoor watering days. Thanks, Cedar Park!  
Save the date! Wait, Independence Day 
is always July 4!
We're making big plans for our July 4 Celebration. This year's event will be a little different - but will definitely include:
  • Fireworks
  • Movie after fireworks and
  • Lots of other fun surprises!
Stay tuned as plans unfold. We'll keep you posted on the details.
Monarch Butterfly Preservation
Cedar Park is part of the Monarch butterfly's migration pattern, as they make their way from Mexico to Canada each year. If you think you have seen fewer Monarch butterflies, you are correct. The butterfly population has significantly decreased worldwide over the past two decades. Part of the problem is a loss of milkweed, the only host plant of the Monarch's caterpillars. 

The City of Cedar Park is proud to participate in the National Wildlife Federation's Monarch Recovery Initiative. Find out what the City is doing to help our beautiful Monarchs and what you can do in your neighborhood and yard here.
As the City continues with our Monarch Butterfly Preservation Pledge, we will be limiting mowing in selected Parks and City-owned properties where possible. This is in an effort to avoid destroying milkweed and other nectar plants.
Gather up those leaves, grass and bundled/tied branches, to be recycled on your regular weekly trash day now through May 7. Get more details here.

How does it work?
Watch a short video with all the information you need here.

  • Keep in mind that another recycling truck may have to come by to pick up paper bags and bundled trimmings outside of your recycling cart.

  • Our provider will continue to collect up to seven (7) bulk items outside of your trash bin each week. This may require a second truck if automated trucks are being used for your route.
The April 22, 2021 City Council Meeting was conducted in a hybrid meeting format, with some City Council Members and some City staff attending in-person. 

Council discussed, among other items:

  • Update on City’s July 4th Event
  • Improvements to Cedar Park Town Center Park including proposed trail improvements, pond improvements, picnic areas, trees and landscaping, and basketball court/children's play equipment, based on public engagement feedback
  • Authorization of agreement with J.E. Dunn Construction Group, Inc. to provide pre-construction services for Cedar Park Library Project in the Bell District
