Users of Finding Rover can search the shelter and surrounding areas right from their smartphone or computer in efforts to find their missing pet, a neighbor’s missing pet, the family of a found pet or search for adoptable pets. Registration of your pet is FREE and as simple as 1, 2, 3!  Just go to www.FindingRover.com.

Williamson County to Re-Issue Ballots

Williamson County’s Election Office will be re-issuing approximately 8,000 ballots-by-mail that were distributed missing a candidate’s name in a state-wide election. Under the Presiding Judge, Court of Criminal Appeals race, the ballots should have listed three candidates: a Republican, a Democrat and a Libertarian. Due to an error, the Libertarian candidate, William Bryan Strange, III, was not listed on the ballots. “We regret the mistake we made, and we are working diligently to rectify this situation. We are expediting production of the corrected ballots-by-mail and expect to mail them next week. We ask anyone who received a Williamson County ballot-by-mail to wait and use the corrected ballot they will be receiving,” said Chris Davis, Williamson County Elections Administrator.

Sign Up at WarnCentralTexas.org for Emergency Notifications

The Capital Area Council of Governments (CAPCOG) is upgrading the regional notification system that powers WarnCentralTexas.org to bring residents emergency and public safety warnings they need to protect their families, properties and selves. As part of the upgrade, CAPCOG recommends that previously self-registered participants update their notification information by using the link inside an email sent through the new Everbridge system. Residents who haven’t registered to receive emergency warnings at WarnCentralTexas.org should do so. It is important to note newer cellphone models receive federal notifications, such as Amber Alerts. WarnCentralTexas.org is a separate system and a critical tool for local first responders to reach the affected public during an emergency.
