 If you answered YES to any of these you need to attend the VNA annual meeting on April 10th and express yourself to our elected officials.

On behalf of the VNA Board, we would like to extend a big invitation to all of you to join us for our annual meeting at the Volente Fire Station on Saturday, April 10th, starting at 4:00 pm in the afternoon and ending with a catered dinner from Berry Hill from 6 to 7:30. We are very excited to announce that both Travis County Commissioner Karen Huber and Representative Donna Howard as well as a representative from TX DOT have confirmed their attendance at this year's annual meeting. We have a full schedule for our meeting.
 
We have asked Commissioner Huber to touch on the various roadway projects affecting our area including Bullick Hollow Rd, agreements made between Travis County and the City of Austin during the construction of Water Treatment Plant #4 and the widening of the 620 and Anderson Mill intersection. We will also get her take on responsible growth in Travis County and how she plans to guide it in a sustainable way. 
The representative from TXDOT will be able to expand on the roadway issues pertaining to the portions of the surrounding roadways managed by them.  
We have asked Representative Donna Howard to touch on what her priorities are for the upcoming legislative session, the Texas budget deficit, access to and use of stimulus money for Travis County, health care improvements in Texas, and as the Vice Chair of the Committee on Culture, Recreation, and Tourism how she thinks the LCRA should be managed going forward. 
 
 After the presentations and the Q&A session, the VNA board will hold a meeting of all members to elect the board members for this coming year.  All current board members are running for an additional term, but we are always looking for additional members to join us.  If you are interested please call Ken Beck at 512-917-5188.
See you on Saturday April 10th at 4:00pm.
 
Ken Beck, President, Volente Neighborhood Association
