State Representative Celia Israel will be coming by Wells Branch to meet with residents, and give a summary of the 85th Regular and Special Called Session.
Members of TxDOT’s Mobility35 Team will also be there to let people know about upcoming road projects in the area. It looks like they’re finally ready to talk about IH35 and WB Pkwy.

The Travis County Sheriff’s Office will host a Public Safety Event on Sunday November 5th from 10am – 4pm. The event will be held at the Cinemark 20 (Tinseltown) parking lot in the 15400-blk of N IH 35. Representatives from various Law Enforcement and Public Safety groups will be on site to offer valuable safety information and services including:
- TCSO Community Outreach – Providing Child ID Kits
- Sheriff’s Combined Auto Theft Task Force – Providing Free VIN Etching (proof of insurance required)
- TCSO Crisis Intervention Team – Providing information about emergency mental health care resources
- TCSO Victim’s Services – Providing information and resources for victims of crime
- TCSO Mascot – On site for fun photo opportunities
Earlier this year the WB FOL group worked with other community members and local business professionals to present a financial educational series. Overall the program was well received and those who attended gained valuable insight and information. These sessions were successful because of the educational format–there were no “hard sell” sales program.
Because they were working with business professionals’ schedules, weekends simply weren’t an option. In addition, for a variety of reasons, they could not record any of the sessions. After collecting some additional feedback, the FOL has decided to present a single “re-cap” session.
The intent of the session is to capture and present the key learning points and information from each session. They will also provide a “laundry list” of resources to help folks build their financial knowledge base. The information provided will serve as an outline of financial knowledge.
Regardless or your age or distance from retirement, please consider attending.
