Williamson County Recommends Residents Use Face Coverings In Public

Williamson County is encouraging all county residents to follow the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommendations to wear face coverings when they are out in public. The CDC emphasized that social distancing remains the best practice to help reduce the spread of COVID-19; however, they are advising people to take the extra safety measure by using cloth face coverings in places where social distancing may be difficult to enforce to help people who may have the virus and do not know it from transmitting it to others. To learn ways to create your own mask, go to the CDC website https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/prevent-getting-sick/diy-cloth-face-coverings.html.  To help make masks for others, click here.

Each year the Women’s Transportation Seminar - Heart of Texas Chapter selects and invites two transportation leaders in the community to be honorary members of the organization, and Commissioner Cook was chosen. She is only one of two recipients selected this year!

The honor includes membership to WTS International with an affiliation to the WTS - Heart of Texas Chapter for one year. Lindsay Wood, P.E, president of the Heart of Texas Chapter said, “We sincerely appreciate your continued leadership of the advancement of women in transportation through your contributions to the greater transportation community in Central Texas.”

Commissioner Cook is shown in the photo speaking to the group on Wednesday, Jan. 17, about a county official’s role in transportation. She explained that state law allows a county to create or participate in a regional mobility authority, which is an independent government agency that addresses roads. The Central Texas Regional Mobility Authority (CTRMA) was created in 2003 to improve the transportation systems in Williamson and Travis counties. In her speech she also discussed possibilities that could help pay for roads, such as raising the money with bonds, tolls and taxes, and creating road districts.
