VNA Annual Meeting; Burn Ban Reminder


The Volente Neighborhood Association wants to remind all local residents and property owners to attend the annual meeting on Saturday, April 4th. The meeting begins at 4PM at the fire hall and concludes with a catered dinner from Fajita Warehouse from 6 to 7:30PM. There is a full schedule for the meeting. 
Representatives of Travis County Commissioner Karen Huber's office will be on hand to let you know what the commissioner is working on and to answer your questions about roadways, the water treatement plant at Bullick Hollow / FM 620, the proposed deep water intake, etc.
The VNA will also have representatives of the City of Austin to discuss plans for Water Treatment Plant #4 and the impact of its construction on Bullick Hollow Road. You will want to be there!
After the presentations and Q&A sessions, the VNA board will hold a meeting of all members to elect the board members for this coming year.
You do not need to be an existing member to attend. For those who want to join or renew, the VNA will be collecting annual membership payments at the meeting. Anyone with a paid membership can share in the fajita dinner for free. The fee for dinner if you don't have a membership will be $15 per family / $30 per business, so you might as well become a member while there. You will come out ahead and you will help VNA to keep bringing you great programs and representing your interests.
See you on Saturday April 4th at 4:00pm!

Yes, The Burn Ban is Still in Effect

County wide burn ban logoYes, despite recent rains (and hail), the Travis County burn ban is still in effect due to continuing drought conditions.
The existing burn ban order will continue until April 22nd, unless the Travis County Commissioners Court takes action to either end the ban or to extend it. Don't risk a hefty fine or worse - causing a destructive fire - by violating the order.
