We only have 7% vaccination rate in WilCo right now. While it’s great our transmission and hospitalization rates are trending down, it’s because we have been so dedicated to taking care of our neighbors and community with masks, distancing, and healthy habits. Please continue to wear the masks until our vaccination rates are much higher! Let’s continue to respect and value the lives of others. #IHeartCP 💚💙As y’all probably saw today, the Governor put out a new COVID order effective WED March 10th. It ends his mask mandate from last July and removes all business/establishment % operating limits for those counties that don’t have “high hospitalization rates” as defined by DSHS.

For those counties that do have high hospitalization rates, the order allows county judges to set operating limits at 50-99% and do mask mandates for businesses. Neither Williamson or Travis currently have high hospitalization rates, though that’s changed before and could change again.

The Governor’s order allows businesses and establishments to set their own COVID protocols, including requiring that employees and customers wear masks. Many businesses are doing exactly that. If they do, let’s respect that. They’re in a tough situation, trying to keep people safe and still stay in business. Many school districts (including LISD and RRISD) will continue to require masks.

Our city attorney and city staff are reviewing the Governor’s order to see what discretion it leaves to local govt and how it might apply to our city facilities/property. Decisions will be made soon.

Regardless, these issues have always had strongly-held, divergent views in our community. That doesn’t mean we have to let this divide us. We are Cedar Park! We already have the power to be safe AND to keep others safe from us. So let’s just go do it! Let’s keep covering our mouth and nose when having to be around others, especially indoors. Let’s stay outside as much as possible. Let’s be kind. Let’s put others before ourselves. Let’s do what we’ve been doing: taking care of one another. Let’s be mindful that 85-90% of our residents over 16 haven’t gotten vaccines yet. Let’s stay strong and positive, and we will get through this like we do everything else in Cedar Park...together!

Big Announcement: City Council approves moving forward with plan for water bill adjustments

-Calculate the new sewer rate using last winter's sewer average, instead of this winter's average.
-Waive normal $25 plumbing permit fee for 30 days
-Allow for City to provide for a 100% leak adjustment, instead of the normal allowed 50% adjustment
-You must submit an application to be considered for an adjustment (Click here: r20.rs6.net/tn.jsp?f=001O_OYEWnFEdDbxsy1Nq8OK2Mxfl_pJxM49PBU5WcpQJzo4q9h2nmZSy4Z2Hj7n-2T2Hn5BMUG9...)

Come Have Coffee with Me!

During the 2 years while I was on the city council, I held over 80 Open Office Hours days.  If reelected, I am committed to this again.

 

However, let’s not wait till then to meet up!  I am going to hold open door coffee sessions, as well as have many meet and greet events, so you can come talk to me and ask me anything. I want to get to know you as well and show you how I will serve the city honestly, transparently, and equally for all.

 

Hope to see you at one of my sessions! No need to make an appointment, but if you have a topic that may take a while, then please let me block that time off for you. I can be reached at JeftsforCedarPark@gmail.com

My past office hour events can also be seen on Facebook.
