Austin to be “Purple Heart City”

Tuesday, September 15, 2015 by Elizabeth Pagano

This Thursday, Mayor Steve Adler will proclaim Austin to be a “Purple Heart Capital City.” The proclamation is a way to honor those in the armed forces who have been wounded or killed in action. The city is also designating I-35 as a “Purple Heart Trail” and will install road signs to that effect along the highway. The proclamation will take place at 5:30 p.m., during the City Council meeting.
