National Night Out
Tuesday, Oct. 1
National Night out is Tuesday, Oct. 1! NNO parties are encouraged to be hosted within neighborhoods. Registration is not a requirement, but it helps us identify the neighborhoods hosting parties so we can schedule our officers to attend as many as possible. 


Scam Alert
The City of Buda continues to experience a scam involving a caller who is telling residents there is “fraudulent activity” as well as “outstanding tickets” and is asserting immediate compliance.

Light Installation
Things are about to get a little brighter at Buda Sportsplex. Lights are going up on the soccer and softball fields. There will be a total of 26 light poles with 10 poles being installed on the soccer fields and 16 on the softball fields. We are using LED lights for energy savings purposes and they are "Dark Sky" friendly. The lights are also grounded, in case of lightning strikes. They should be in place by December of this year.
