1. Dough Boys, a new pizza food truck, opened Aug. 7 at Arbor Food Park, 1108 E. 12th St., Austin. The menu features a selection of 12-inch pies from a wood-fired oven. www.doughboysatx.com

2. Downtown Austin Community Court temporarily moved its case management services from the court building at 719 E. Sixth St., Austin to the Austin Public Library Terrazas Branch at 1105 E. Cesar Chavez St., Austin. The court handled public order offenses and offers case management services. The number of people seeking those services has increased since March, necessitating the move to the larger library space so individuals can wait inside safely and staff can be added on-site. 512-974-4879. www.austintexas.gov
