BUILDERS, DEVELOPERS, AND SUBDIVIDERS
The City of Lockhart has updated its impact fees to reflect the current cost of infrastructure projects, and to make adjustments to the road, water, and wastewater impact fee capital improvements plans. The new fees are higher than the previous impact fee rates. However, the previous fees will remain in affect for all building permits until October 1, 2017.
In addition, building permits for construction on lots shown on a final subdivision plat approved before October 1, 2017, will continue to be charged the previous fees until October 1, 2019. Building permits for construction on all other lots will be charged the new rates effective October 1, 2017.

You may have recently noticed a faint odor in the drinking water. It is due to a process that helps prevent chlorine build-up in water mains and burns off excess ammonia in the Lockhart water distribution system. Flushing of the water distribution system at fire hydrants near dead end water mains continues; this help eliminate the residue odors. If the odor of your tap water is still strong, please contact the Water Department at (512) 398-3615 during normal business hours or the Lockhart Police Department at (512) 398-4401 before or after normal business hours.
The water has been and continues to be tested. The water is safe to drink.
The City of Lockhart prepared a five-year update of the Impact Fee Land Use Assumptions and Roadway, Water, and Wastewater Impact Fees, including capital improvements plans and the maximum allowable impact fees per service unit.
The City of Lockhart held a public hearing regarding the updates on Tuesday, April 4, 2017. Click here to view details about the public hearing.
