It's Hot Outside! Tips for Staying Safe in the Summer Heat
The heat turned up this past week, with many areas seeing at or above 100 degrees. Forecasts show it will still be in the 90s over the weekend, so if you're looking to spend time on the lake, hit a few rounds of golf or explore some of the area trails, the Lakeway Police Department wants you to keep safety in mind.

If you're hitting the lake for instance, make sure to wear a life jacket. Don't go on the lake by yourself unless you notify a friend or family member, keeping them updated on your whereabouts and when you expect to return.

The hot weather means you should stay hydrated on the local trails. Don't forget to always check the backseat to ensure everyone is out of the car when you leave the vehicle, and keep an eye on your pets. Make sure they have a shaded, cool place to retreat.

Submit Your Feedback on a Regional Transportation Study
Transportation is a hot topic here in Lakeway and your voice is important. The Capital Area Metropolitan Planning Organization (CAMPO) held an open house earlier this week at the Bee Cave Public Library to get input from the community on an arterials study. Some renderings and possible options were displayed at the open house. The study looks 20 years into the future on improvements that could be made to area roadways. If you weren't able to attend the open house, it's ok. Input will be accepted until July 15. Visit campotexas.org to view information about the study and provide feedback.
