New wildfire mitigation specialist joins the team
The City of Lakeway and Lake Travis Fire Rescue welcome Chris Rea, formerly of Boulder County, Colo., as our new wildfire mitigation specialist.
Rea will educate the public about wildfire risk, conduct free home ignition zone assessments for Lakeway residents, and manage Wildfire Ready brush clearing workdays.
Honey Creek recently started site work on a residential development at RM 620 across from Lake Travis High School. The community will include 30 two-story residences with 3 bedrooms, 2.5 baths, and 2 garages. The developer's application for a building permit is under review by the city.
Improvements have begun on the city's kennels that temporarily house lost and injured animals. Lake Travis Lions Club is funding refurbishments to the electrical and security systems, air conditioning, and kennels. Cat enclosures also will be added. Thank you to the Lions for their donation.
