Commissioners Court takes a spring break
Wednesday, March 15, 2017 by Caleb Pritchard
Your typical Wednesday morning pleasure – an update on the hip happenings at Travis County Commissioners Court – will not take place this week. The court canceled its usual Tuesday voting session, putting off until at least next week any new action related to the county’s legislative agenda, its handling of the collapse of the Austin Police Department’s DNA forensics lab and/or the selection of a new site for the civil courthouse. Rest assured that the court – public communications and all – will, like the rest of the city, get back into the swing of things after the final echoes of South by Southwest have bounced off the buildings of downtown Austin and traffic is maybe a bit less of a pain.
