Williamson County road bond committee to hold first meeting March 21


On March 5, the Williamson County Commissioners formed a Citizens Bond Committee to discuss future needs for county roads and parks.

The purpose of a Williamson County Citizens Bond Committee is to review and analyze the infrastructure needs of Williamson County to determine if the county should consider a bond election in November 2019.

If the committee decides that bonds are needed to fund projects, then the committee is to propose projects to the Williamson County Commissioners Court for potential funding in November 2019 Bond Referendums. The Commissioners Court will then consider their recommendation and make a final determination regarding bond language to be placed on the November 2019 ballot. 

The bond advisory committee was created with the County Judge selecting the committee chair and each commissioner naming two people to serve on the committee. County Judge Bill Gravell selected former Precinct 3 Commissioner David Hays to chair the committee.

Other committee members are:

Precinct 1: Meg Walsh and Mitch Fuller

Precinct 2: Joe Bob Ellison and Matt Powell

Precinct 3: Tim Lear and John Marler

Precinct 4: Ron Randig and Bryon Brochers


The Citizens Bond Advisory Committee will hold its first meeting 3:30 p.m. Thursday, March 21, in the Commissioners Courtroom of the historic courthouse, 710 S. Main Street, Georgetown.

The meeting will be recorded and posted to the county’s website so the meeting is available for future viewing. Information on the committee and its meetings can be found at www.wilco.org/bondcommittee.
