Group calls for CTRMA reform

Wednesday, January 27, 2016 by Elizabeth Pagano

Today, a “citizen coalition” plans to call for reform of the Central Texas Regional Metropolitan Authority board, which it claims has become a “special interest and lobbyist dominated ‘Toll Road Authority.’” The group will hold a press conference to ask the Travis County Commissioners Court to “take the first step towards reform” through its upcoming board appointment. In a press release about its upcoming action, the group explains, “The Coalition believes that the real estate special interests represented on the CTRMA Board of Directors have conflicts of interest. All but one board member are connected to the real estate industry – in real estate transactions, developments and lobbying. The Coalition will also release a map of the CTRMA Board members’ land ownership and other materials that demonstrate the CTRMA board’s failure to represent the public interest.”
