Lakeway's audit results are in
Every year, in accordance with the Charter, the city council has an independent auditor examine financial records and internal controls in order to render an opinion of whether the financial statements are presented without material misstatements. After an exhaustive process, Singleton, Clark & Company found that the annual financial statements for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2018, were prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles and provided an unmodified or "clean" opinion. Special thank you for a job well done by the city Finance Department, lead by Assistant City Manager, Julie Oakley.

Police Station to open April 15
After three years of designing, planning and building, the new Lakeway Police Station will be operational on April 15. The construction crews are finalizing several punch list items, furniture installation is underway, and communication testing will commence next week. Once all details are finalized, the Police Department will relocate during the week of April 10th. The final step is transferring 9-1-1 services on April 15th. The city is planning a ribbon cutting ceremony on Saturday, May 11th to celebrate its opening.

Facility needs assessment
The City Council will meet in a special work session on Monday, April 8 th at 2:00 p.m. to review the first draft of the Facility Needs Assessment. In September, City Council awarded a contract to Huitt-Zollars, Inc. to assess the ability of each city building to serve current and future needs and whether or not each facility is efficiently delivering services to the public. The results of this needs assessment will be used to update the city’s Capital Improvement Plan which will ultimately be utilized in the comprehensive plan.

On Saturday April 6th, Lakeway citizens are encouraged to join Lake Travis Fire Rescue and Lakeway Parks and Recreation for a Wildfire Ready Workday. Volunteers are needed to pick up and move the cut brush to a road where it can be accessed by a chipper. The workday will run from 8:30 to noon.  A pizza lunch for the volunteers will follow the workday.
The city received a grant from the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality for the purpose of continuing the development of a network of electric vehicle charging stations locally. The city is committed to seek ways to facilitate the development of strategies to reduce ozone pollution. The new charging station is located at the Lakeway Swim Center and will be operational the week of April 8th.
