Weiss Lane Widening Project Open House
The City of Pflugerville and Travis County will host an open house at the Pflugerville Justice Center, 1611 E. Pfennig Ln. on Wednesday, October 26 from 5:30 p.m.-7:30 p.m. to provide information about the much-anticipated Weiss Lane Roadway Improvements project that is slated to begin in early 2017. Weiss Lane
This project is funded by Travis County and City of Pflugerville voter-approved bond funds and will widen the roadway from Wilbarger Creek to Cele Rd. from two lanes to four lanes with curb and gutter and drainage improvements. The southernmost section from Wilbarger Creek to East Pecan St. will be reconstructed as a four-lane roadway with shoulders. The project limits are from East Pecan St. to Cele Rd. (3 miles) and include reconstruction of all bridges from Pecan Street to Cele Road starting with the one-lane bridge closest to Pecan St.

Throughout the construction, the roadway will remain open with a north and southbound lane of traffic at all times.

The project will begin in early 2017 with construction scheduled for 20 months. Weiss Lane PfactSheet

Trim your Trees now to comply with safety ordinances

tree blocking sidewalk and roadThe City of Pflugerville Ordinances require that trees must hang no less than 8 ft above sidewalks and 14 ft above the street. These ordinances ensure that recreational sidewalk use and emergency vehicle roadway use is not inhibited by tree growth or limbs. It is imperative that homeowners comply and trim trees on their property to Ordinance Standards by November 1, 2016. 

Starting November 1, homes in violation will receive a door hanger notice two weeks prior to city enforcement trimming.

City crews will visit subdivisions and cut trees that do not meet the standards and clearance requirements. 

City crews will cut trees straight across at the desired height, thus homeowners desiring more aesthetic cuts are encouraged to complete their tree trimming before enforcement begins on November 1. 

For questions, please call public works at 512-990-6400. 
 
 
Pflugerville receives Keep Texas Beautiful Green Bag Grant 
KTbeautifulThe City of Pflugerville is a recipient of a $2000 Green Bag Grant from Keep Texas Beautiful. The program gives 13 Texas communities grants to support water conservation education and programming pertaining to environmental education.

Hardwired smoke alarms should be checked
smaller fire graphic Working smoke alarms cut the risk in half of dying in a home fire, but most people in Pflugerville don’t realize that smoke alarms are not designed to work reliably after 10 years from the date they were made. This is true even if the alarm is hard-wired and the batteries are changed regularly.

For more information, visit Travis County ESD No. 2 (Pflugerville Fire Department) at www.PflugervilleFire.org, choose the Prevention tab then Public Education, and click on Smoke Detector Safety.  Don't wait- check the date.
