City urges utility bill donations

Monday, August 3, 2015 by Elizabeth Pagano

As a reminder, the city of Austin would like residents to know that they can contribute to libraries and parks through their utility bills. Since 2013, the Parks and Libraries Fund has raised about $50,000. The Parks and Recreation Department uses the fund for youth scholarships. The Austin Public Library uses its portion of the funds to support access to digital materials. More information about the library programs can be found here, and more information about Parks and Recreation programs can be found here.
