County judge calls emergency meeting

Friday, February 19, 2021 by Tai Moses

County Judge Andy Brown has ordered an emergency meeting of the Travis County Commissioners Court today at noon to discuss a number of emergency agenda items, including “the severe weather conditions and disruptions caused by the severe and freezing weather and its aftermath and recovery efforts.” The commissioners will also discuss extending the Declaration of Disaster and the Supplemental Disaster Declaration that was declared Feb. 16, and will be briefed by the county attorney on price gouging and other issues related to the storm. Community members may attend the meeting virtually here or here and may give comment on any agenda items by calling (888) 966-1236 at the beginning the meeting.

Editor’s Note: Andy Brown on the board of the Capital of Texas Media Foundation, which is the parent nonprofit of the Austin Monitor.
