Dust off your boots and get to this event Thursday!

We are sending you this alert to ask you to attend a meeting about the Waste Transfer in Cedar Creek THIS Thursday, November at 6:30 pm at the Cedar Creek Middle School, 126 Voss Parkway.

We will also give you very important updates on the water wars, especially Vista Ridge/The San Antone Hose.

Show Up Bastrop County!

SHOW UP, Y’ALL
Bastrop & Cedar Creek residents!

Have you witnessed or been part of traffic accidents in this area of Highway 21 and FM 812?

We request your attendance
at this urgently important meeting!

Monday, Sept. 18, 7 pm

Cedar Creek High School * This meeting was called by TCEQ

A permit application is on file with the TCEQ  (Texas  Commission for Environmental Quality) for a Hazardous Waste Transfer Station in much of Cedar Creek’s floodplain and is very likely to be a traffic hazard! This area of Highway 21 (near FM 812) is already known as dangerous.

It is imperative that Bastropians show up to share your concerns and ideas or you will not be counted.  Please come and bring family, neighbors and friends! Heck, bring your enemies — they all count!

Read this Fact Sheet about the Proposed Cedar Creek Transfer Station

You can sign this informal petition to the TCEQ here but real people being there and speaking directly to officials is imperative!

Independent Texans, it’s redundant!

Breaking News in Bastrop!

The City of Bastrop just filed an amended agenda item for tomorrow’s

City of Bastrop, Texas

(Tuesday, August 15) meeting at 6:30 pm at City Hall.

THE Bastrop City Council will hold an Executive Session to deliberate on the possible reassignment, disciplinary action or dismissal of the City Attorney. Whether this has anything to do with the Ethics Ordinance changes is something that we do not know.

There is also a budget workshop tomorrow night. Bastropians need to pay attention to the possibility of a tax increase. The Bastrop Advertiser, in it’s August 10th edition, did this very helpful review of a long presentation by City Manager Lynda Humble.

Got questions? Call us or see you there tomorrow. You should also be able to watch the proceedings on the City of Bastrop’s Facebook page.

YOUR CALENDARS! The Texas Commission for Environmental Quality (TCEQ) will hold a meeting on Monday, September 18 at 7 pm at Cedar Creek High School about the proposed Waste Transfer Station slated for Highways 21 and 812 in the Cedar Creek Area. We will be calling a community meeting soon to prepare for the TCEQ meeting. For more information, please call Steve Chamberlain at (817) 360-0678. You can also read more about this and sign a petition online here.

Cedar Creek Waste Transfer Station Petition

If you live in Bastrop County, especially in or near the Cedar Creek or Del Valle communities, please consider signing this petition. It will be used to question the placement of a waste transfer station in an area that appear to us to not be the best location.

Read this Fact Sheet and sign the petition below — share it with your friends in Bastrop, Caldwell and eastern Travis Counties. Fact Sheet — Cedar Creek Transfer Station

We’ll let you know when area meetings will be taking place soon or you can call Steve Chamberlain at 817-360-0678 for more information.

We, the undersigned residents of Cedar Creek, Del Valle and Bastrop County living near the proposed LEALCO Municipal Solid Waste Facility, petition the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality to deny MSW Permit 40291 for the following reasons:

1. The proposed facility will degrade the area, which is a residential area. We live here because it is a peaceful, secure, quiet area of family homes. Having a MSW facility nearby will fundamentally change this. In addition, such a facility will have a devastating effect on the value of our properties. Noise pollution caused by trucks constantly entering and exiting the facility will degrade our lives and property values.

2. The facility would be located on Hwy. 21, which is heavily used by commuters, commercial traffic, and large trucks. The proposed facility would introduce 300 additional trash trucks per day, coming and going, as well as many larger trucks taking the collected trash to landfills. The facility would greatly increase the likelihood of serious collisions, as the trucks entering and leaving the facility to cross Hwy. 21 at low speed, interfering with the flow of traffic. Many school busses pick up and drop off children along Hwy. 21 and adjacent streets. These children would face additional danger caused by garbage trucks entering and exiting Hwy. 21.

3. Pollution caused by truck exhaust fumes and by trash that escapes from the trucks and from the facility will spread throughout the area, especially along roadways and into nearby Cedar Creek and its tributaries.

For the above compelling reasons, we petition TCEQ to deny the permits requested by LEALCO.

For more information contact Steve Chamberlain at 230 Oak Forest Drive, Cedar Creek, TX 78612 * or call (817) 360-0678
