SUMMARY: Residents in certain neighborhoods in Austin voted on dis annexation propositions with three out of six neighborhoods choosing to break away from the city. These neighborhoods, including West Austin Lost Creek, Blue Goose Road, and Northeast Austin, will no longer pay Austin property taxes but will lose city services like trash pickup and switch to a Travis County Fire District for fire services. Despite some uncertainties, residents are optimistic about the change. City council will meet in May to certify the results, and the dis annexation process will be gradual. Residents in some neighborhoods are relieved to keep their current services and remain within city limits.

Certain neighborhoods in Austin are leaving the city limits. Residents voted Saturday on one of six dis-annexation propositions. In the end, three out of the six areas voted to break away from the city.

SUMMARY: Round Rock ISD Board of Trustee Daniel Weston blames the superintendent for recent issues in the school district, stating that “a fish rots from the head.” Despite the district’s efforts to address concerns, Weston and other trustees believe that two members are exacerbating the situation by releasing personal information. There were reservations about hiring Police Chief Dennis Weiner due to past accusations, and an investigation later revealed a negative and chaotic environment within the police department. Weston expressed fears for the safety of students and staff, questioning the ability of officers to protect them amidst internal turmoil. The board was disappointed by the release of sensitive information and emphasized the importance of addressing security concerns.

A letter from Round Rock ISD police chief Dennis Weiner to the district superintendent reveals new details about his sudden departure from the department.
