At Feb. 22's Bee Cave City Council meeting, Mayor Kara King opened the session with a proclamation that Feb. 23, 2022, would be Cecil Perkins Day. Perkins, 92, is an early citizen of Bee Cave and served as the city's first municipal judge from 1990-97.
Perkins served in the military and later was a captain with the Austin Fire Department. He later served as a Realtor and was inducted into the Texas Horse Racing Hall of Fame in 2014 and owns Witch Doctor Farms.
"The high point in this presentation to me is to look out here and see ... the people who have developed the finest little city in Bee Cave, Texas," Perkins said.
