New Canine Corral Provides Space for Dogs During Construction

The dogs of the Williamson County Regional Animal Shelter have moved to a temporary shelter in the old Georgetown Livestock Show Barn located in San Gabriel Park at 425 E Morrow Street. The show barn, nicknamed the "Canine Corral," has an adoption lobby, adoption kennels, an intake area for lost dogs and owner surrenders (by appointment), and an area for animal health technicians to care for the dogs. The Canine Corral is open the same hours as the Williamson County Regional Animal Shelter Monday through Friday from noon to 6 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. To view adoptable dogs, click here.

2018 Predicted to be Dangerous Year for Wildfires

Hot, dry, and windy. That is the prediction for this year’s wildfire season which starts in May and continues through the fall. These three conditions can have devastating effects as Central Texas residents discovered during 2011 when numerous wildfires started throughout the region including the Bastrop Complex Fire in Bastrop County, the Steiner Ranch Fire in Travis County, and the Moonglow Fire in Williamson County. Fire and emergency management officials in the Capital Area Council of Governments (CAPCOG) 10-county region want to remind residents to be prepared for this wildfire season.

County Approves Contract with Chasco for Cave Mitigation

The Williamson County Commissioners Court approved the contract with Chasco Constructors, LTD, L.L.P. in the amount of $530,425 for mitigation services for Cambria Cavern, Cambria Drive and Ephraim Road. On April 26, 2018, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) approved Williamson County’s proposed plan to close the cave on Cambria Drive. The plan meets both the TCEQ’s objective to protect the water quality and keep the cave hydraulically connected to the aquifer and the County’s objective to reopen the road with a minimum impact to the neighborhood.
