Lampasas County Commissioners met this morning in the County Courtroom at 9am to receive the County Auditor's quarterly report, along with funding issues for various projects and a discussion on need for addressing private roads in the County. 
Lampasas City Council will meet this evening at 5:30pm in a workshop session where they'll discuss the annual audit for FY 2015, possible waiver of zoning regulations and discuss the Lampasas Co. Water control and Improvement District No. 1.
 
In spite of almost no rain in February and March, the spring grasses and clovers have been pretty thick and beautiful in early spring. Now, with the last several days of off and on rainfall, and the sunshine that returned yesterday, we can expect an explosion of green. It should make business good for local lawn care workers, and for the several stores that have lawn mowers for sale.

Saturday, 23 April 2016
This has been Spring Cleanup Week in Lampasas and the extra roll off dumpsters have been at the City Yard on Brown Street all week. They are there for those special items you can't put in your trash can; things like old tires, furniture, old bikes or other large items. You can't take in electronics of hazardous materials to this one, and you will have to pay a small amount to dispose of those old tires, but it's a way better deal than we'll have next week. This is the last day the dumpsters will be available, so get out there and clean up the garage...it's your last chance for a while. Be sure to take an old utility bill or some other proof of local residence with you, otherwise you'll have to pay a fee.
 
On Thursday, March 3, 2016 the Lampasas Police Department and Fire Department responded to a bomb threat at the Lampasas Walmart store on Central Texas Expressway. The store had to be evacuated and lots of double checking, including calling in a Ft. Hood bomb squad was done. No bombs were found and business was resumed after a few hours, but the result was a lot of trouble and expense in lost business for the store and countless hours work for both authorities and emergency workers as well as store employees.
 
Police began an immediate investigation, and Assistant Police Chief and Investigator Sammy Bailey released an update on Friday. She says the call-taker at Walmart that morning calmly wrote down the phone number the call was coming from. The next day, a call was made to Walmart again, taunting them

So far the rainfall in Lampasas for April has been 3.93'', but rainfall along the Colorado River above Lake Buchanan around Goldthwaite has been much higher, between 5-6 inches.

That heavy rainfall upstream has caused the Colorado at Bend to be rolling on around flood stage at over 14 ft.

The measurement is uncertain because of the level of water running through at present, but to show the comparison: 

Normal flow at Bend in early to mid-April was about 145 cubic
