New councilmembers take office
Louis Mastrangelo and Laurie Higginbotham, right, were sworn in as Lakeway's newest councilmembers Monday night.
Mastrangelo previously served on the city's Zoning and Planning Commission, and Higginbotham chaired the city's Board of Ethics and was a member of the Board of Adjustment.
Both were elected to 18-month terms in the Nov. 6 special election.
Thank you, Lakeway!
The City of Lakeway staff, City Council, and all its volunteers wish you a Happy Thanksgiving!
Thank you for reading The Lake Way and for being a part of our community.
One Lakeway resident who is feeling blessed this time of year is Mayor Sandy Cox who took time recently to reflect on her reasons for feeling thankful in a new blog on the city's website.
Monthly Police Update
As traffic has increased in Lakeway over the years, so too have the number of collisions.
More than 400 collisions have been reported so far this year to the Lakeway Police Department, and the busy holiday season is about to begin.
Please exercise caution when traveling during the holidays and stay safe.
The City of Lakeway and CAMPO are encouraging the public to attend two upcoming transportation meetings.
The first one is a come-and-go open house that the Capital Area Metropolitation Planning Organization ( CAMPO) will host from 4-7 p.m. Nov. 28 at Lake Travis Community Library, 1938 Lohmans Crossing Road, for the public to learn more about and provide comment on several CAMPO planning initiatives.
The second meeting will be a work session hosted by the Lakeway City Council at 2 p.m. Dec. 17 at Lakeway City Hall, 1102 Lohmans Crossing.
CAMPO and the Texas Department of Transporation (TxDOT) officials will be present to discuss near-term safety improvements and connectivity, the RM 620 widening project, and the arterial study for the Lake Travis area.
The need is real for this Season of Giving.
Opportunities abound for you to help your neighbors in need this holiday season.
One that the City of Lakeway is participating in is Green Santa, a local gift drive by LTlov that, last year, served 600 children from 195 local families struggling to make ends meet.
The deadline to make a donation is Dec. 7. Requested, new and unwrapped gifts for children aged infant to 17 include: dolls, balls, cars and trucks, sports equipment, puzzles and games, blocks, LEGOs and building kits, art supplies, toddler toys and gift cards. Drop off locations include Lake Travis ISD campuses, the Lakeway Police Officers Association, 104 Cross Creek, or the Lakeway Activity Center, 105 Cross Creek, from 8 a.m.-5 p.m. Mondays through Fridays.
Thanksgiving, Nov. 22-23
