LadAnother section of the new Brushy Creek Trail over Brushy Creek as part of Phase V.ies & Gentlemen, it is with deepest pride

And great pleasure that we welcome you today

And now we invite to  join in, hike on this new trail

As Wilco Parks now proudly presents

The newest!

Be our guest be our guest

Put this new trail to the test

Pull your hat on; tie your shoes, my dear

And we’ll provide the rest

Sun or shade, quite the view

Chasco built it, yes its new

RVI planned it with much talk

Don’t believe me, hit the boardwalk

Birds will sing, and they feed

After all, this stream is free

And the fishing here is never second best

Go on down there’s a bridge

Just one stroll and then you’ll

Be our guest, yes our guest

Be our guest

Water flows, under foot

Dapple shade, poison ivy,

Turtles, snakes and stream mighty

Biological cabaret

Until now you never cared

The bridge and rails, all prepared

It’s so roomy for the hikers,

Strollers, wheelchairs and the bikers

Moving fast, or slow behinders

Choose a pace, there’s no timers

And it’s all in perfect weather you can bet

Come on get off the grass

You have your own free pass

To be our guest if you’re stressed

It’s slow walking we suggest

Be our guest, be our guest, be our guest

Life has been no sweet dream

For those of us in quarantine

Our souls are drained without our normal routines

Ah, those good old days when we had choices

Suddenly those good old days are gone

Williamson County and Family Emergency Room announced an improved contract to provide better COVID-19 testing services for all. The charges for COVID-19 tests are currently covered by most inurance companies, and Family Emergency Room will bill the patient's insurance company at no cost to the patient. Tests for any Williamson County resident without insurance will be paid for by the county. The renewed partnership is a continuation of hard work between the two entities to make testing more accessible.  

Under the improved contract, Family Emergency Room will provide a seamless scheduling process to ensure that residents no longer need to wait for a call back to schedule an appointment. The agreement also allows for additional Family Emergency Room sites to be utilized. Residents can count on drive-thru style testing at the two Family Emergency Room locations in Cedar Park, one located on Whitestone Boulevard and the other on Lakeline Boulevard, and at their Round Rock facility on A.W. Grimes Boulevard. In the near future, Family Emergency Room is planning to provide testing at additional Williamson County facilities.  

Due to high demand, testing is being prioritized for symptomatic individuals; however, asymptomatic and antibody testing is also available for a fee and is being scheduled within a five to eight day period.
