An old saying, “all politics start at the local level.” Crucial decisions on rules, laws, ordinances, codes, annual budget, and a large portion of our taxes are decided at the local level during meetings that most residents don’t think about.
The issues that affect your city, county, schools, and every day of your life are discussed and decided on during these meetings, including your tax rates. It is up to us to keep our local officials honest and shape the future of our county, school districts, and cities.
These weekly meetings, where important decisions are made for Hays County, school districts, and the surrounding local municipalities of Buda, Dripping Springs, Kyle, San Marcos, and Wimberley, are listed below.
Each page includes links to the official agenda, meeting minutes, agenda packets, and live or archived videos and/or audio (if available) for each government entity.
