This alert is specifically for Bastrop and Lee County residents, though our friends elsewhere are always invited.
On Wednesday, May 8th, from 6 to 7:30 pm, Independent Texans will hold a community meeting at the First National Bank at their Elgin location, 1312 U.S. 290 (map here). We will discuss strategy for protecting groundwater in the Lost Pines Groundwater Conservation District, in light of the contested case hearing request filed by Aqua Water Supply Corporation, and other potential strategies for citizens to take on their own.
Thanks to Upstart Bastrop Community TV, the video for the first hearing last week, on Wednesday, April 17th, is here! More video coming soon!
This Independent Texans meeting on May 8th will be held one week prior to the contested case hearing by Aqua Water Supply about the Forestar, LCRA and End Op permit applications on Wednesday, May 15th at 5 pm in Bastrop. The location for that hearing is going to be decided next week. Please note that the regular meeting of the Lost Pines GCD will likely immediately follow this hearing. We’ll keep you updated.
You will get another statewide legislative update shortly from [IndyFriends]. There’s reason to keep the calls going over this week and to focus in on the Calendars Committee too.
Please note that this is a better number at which to call Rep. Allan Ritter, Natural Resource Committee Chair: 512-463-0607. Again, watch for the update later today on HB 3250 and other legislation.
Got questions or ideas? Call us or just reply to this message. Meanwhile, please keep getting folks to sign up for our email alerts — on our website. This saves us tremendous time and money.
Thank you Texas!
