CARTS New Service: The Capital Area Rural Transportation System (CARTS) informed City Council of an upcoming new service for Lockhart, called CARTS NOW. The new service is a low-cost, on demand ride service that allows Lockhart citizens to travel on their own time within the city. CARTS NOW rolls out in Lockhart March/April 2022 with the first six months considered a pilot period, consequently free of charge. After that, rides will be $2 each way. There will be two vans dedicated within Lockhart, both will have ramps/lifts. CARTS NOW currently provides service in Manor, Bastrop, and Taylor.

Council also directed Staff to draft a new ordinance adding requirements for nominee qualifications.

BIG Grants provide a 50-percent rebate to downtown façade improvements for up to $20,000 per business. Upon approval, both businesses now have 60 days to complete their improvement projects.
