Should the Travis County Commissioners Court call for an election, about
150 property owners
in a portion of Rough Hollow will have the right to vote to decide whether they want be included in a new emergency services district.
At its regular meeting Jan. 22, Lakeway City Council passed a resolution consenting to the creation of what would become Travis County Emergency Services District No. 16, subject to voter approval.
The new district would be an overlay that would assess up to 10 cents per $100 property valuation to help fund emergency medical services within the boundaries of Travis County Emergency Services District No. 8, which petitioned Lakeway City Council to adopt the resolution.
The council’s action does not form the district. Creation of the new district is contingent upon voter approval if Travis County calls the election for qualified voters within the boundaries of the proposed district.
