Message from Mayor Anthony 

As of 2/6/23

Good evening, 

This is West Lake Hills mayor Linda Anthony with another important message about the widespread damage to vegetation and prolonged power outages from last week's ice storm.

We have been in repeated daily contact with City of Austin and Austin Energy officials since the outages started. We've given them a list of addresses where we know power remains out and we are doing our best to expedite repairs and be your squeaky wheel. I know that's scant consolation to those of you who are still without power and you have my heartfelt sympathy. 

As stated last week, the damage to vegetation is far more extensive than we anticipated due to the heavy level of ice. We have cleared streets of downed trees and our roadways are open. Now begins the task of removing debris like we did in the aftermath of Uri. 

We've contracted with several companies to help with the cleanup and hope to sign on additional crews this week. We are dividing the city into zones, and will assign crews to those areas. We will post a map of those zones, and the crews assigned to them on our website and update that list as more information becomes available. In addition, the city has several dumpsters - at 4010 Bee Cave Road and at the AT&T switching center off Old Stable and Bee Cave - where residents can take vegetative debris.

This is going to be a long process, and I ask for your patience. Please stay safe and check our website for updates. 

Thank you and have a good evening.
