Applications are being sought for local park grants

AUSTIN -- Texas Parks and Wildlife Department is announcing a special call for local park grant applications under the Outdoor Recreation and Urban Outdoor Recreation grant programs before Aug. 1.

With the passage of the omnibus spending bill in December by the U.S. Congress, Texas has received $2,302,679 for its federal apportionment through the Land and Water Conservation Fund. Roughly half this amount -- $1,151,339 -- is available for grant review prior to Aug. 1. Of this amount, 40 percent is set aside for Urban Outdoor Recreation grants and 60 percent is set aside for Outdoor Recreation grants. Applications must be postmarked no later than Aug. 1.

For more information regarding this special call, go to .

Due to limited funds and eligibility requirements, applications for all other Local Park Grant programs are not being accepted at this time. These include the Small Community, Indoor Recreation, Urban Indoor Recreation and Regional grant programs.

For questions regarding the application process, please contact Dana Lagarde sy 512-389-8175 ot

Senior citizen, the mayor doesn't even know what he wants. Every time he post something on his FB page it is ramblings that contradict what he has said in the past. First it was a whole new sports complex (remember the drawings?) ... More ›

I'm confused. Does the mayor want a sports complex or to repair existing sports fields? There is a big difference and he has not been clear.

Joslin doesn't ever give an update on the amount of funds possibly available for our city from USDA's grant program for city infrastructure. Guess he doesn't want to make that news public yet.

Kind of. It's like Paris Hilton's; a blank check from her daddy. Little m thinks he has a blank check from the taxpayers' pocketbooks. Know why they call a sales tax a TAX? Probably because it's a tax.

Well don't be too hard on the mayor. He is only following the lead of the head socialist piper in Washington. Makes no difference what the laws or rules are that he a has sworn to uphold. If he does not like them he makes up ... More ›

Well said Jim. Those questions, he will never answer because he doesn't know how to answer them. The time it takes for him to think of an answer and then post on his FB page, which he thinks most are his supports, but in reality ... More ›

I refuse to believe that all of this points to just incompetence . Someone is pulling the strings of this puppet council to get what they want. Follow the money! We must continue to show up at every council meeting and scrutinize ... More ›
