Last chance to weigh in on superintendent search

HUTTO – The search for a Hutto Independent School District superintendent will soon move into the next phase. The district has scheduled the final community meeting for today at 6:30 p.m. at Farley Middle School, 303 County Road 137. The meeting will be in both English and Spanish.

While there are state laws defining some qualifications needed to be a superintendent, HISD trustees will determine additional qualifications for the district’s new top executive based on the feedback it receives from stakeholders.

On July 8, the board will begin the process of reviewing information gathered from the community surveys and meetings. The district will begin taking applications for the job July 10 with hopes of naming a finalist Aug. 10.

Details on the search are updated on the district’s webpage, www.hipponation.org/superintendentsearch.

City moves to Stage 1 water conservation

Hutto is served by three different water utilities, depending on location – city of Hutto, Manville Water Supply Corp. and Jonah Special Utility District. All are at different stages of water conservation as of June 26.

Jonah Water had not yet enacted any water conservation restriction for customers, according to a company representative.

Manville customers have been on Stage 2 conservation since June 2. Stage 2 comes with mandatory water restrictions enforced by fines.

Residents whose water is provided by the city have been encouraged to begin voluntary water conservation efforts. The city enacted Stage 1 water conservation due to the current heat wave and expected drought conditions on June 19.

The city’s watering recommendations include:

Industrial, commercial and institutional customers voluntarily water outdoors only on Mondays and Fridays Even number residential addresses water outdoors on Sundays and Thursdays Odd number residential addresses water outdoors on Saturdays and Tuesdays Outdoor watering, defined as using an automatic irrigation system or hose-end sprinklers, should be done before 10 a.m. or after 8 p.m.

Should the city need to move to Stage 2 Water Conservation efforts, these and other conservation efforts will be required and enforceable. For more information, visit www.manvillewsc.org, www.jonahwater.com and www.huttotx.gov/water.

Construction projects underway citywide

With a kickoff ceremony last month to celebrate the beginning of roadway improvements that residents voted for in a 2019 bond election, Hutto’s congested transportation grid has become marked with increasingly more orange cones and work zones.

City maps show 10 capital improvement transportation projects underway.

The preponderance of construction along Hutto’s thoroughfares overshadows the fact that the city is undergoing a commercial construction boom as well.

The city’s website lists 66 commercial construction developments in the pipeline, with 32 projects in the review process and 34 currently under construction.
