Council adopts tax rate, budget
Lakeway councilmembers voted unanimously at their meeting Sept. 17 to lower the 2018 property tax rate to .1645 to match the effective tax rate, setting a record low maintenance and operations tax rate.
The staff and City Council were able to achieve the goal of no new taxes while adding two positions, increasing the fund balance ratio, and adding capital dollars to fund our vehicle fleet.
Hats off to our staff!
City to hire wildlife biologist
Lakeway City Council voted, 5-1, at its meeting Sept. 17 to authorize staff to hire wildlife biologist Warren Bluntzer to advise the city's Wildlife Advisory Committee.
Bluntzer will work with the committee to help re-baseline the deer management program by determining the data required to measure the program, collecting the data (i.e. census) and then determining what our carrying capacity is for the herd.
After this is determined, the committee and Bluntzer will identify methods to manage the herd.
Take the survey on Sept. 25-Oct. 9
We want to hear from you!
Next week, the Lakeway City Council and the Public Engagement Advisory Committee will launch a survey to understand the community's communication desires and pose some development questions.
We want to know how to better communicate with our residents and what community amenities are desired for the future.
The survey link will be emailed to The Lake Way subscribers and posted on the City of Lakeway - Government page on Facebook.
