In light of the coronavirus pandemic, dips in multiple revenue streams are expected to continue into the next budget cycle that began Oct. 1. As a result, all four cities in the Lake Travis-Westlake area have trimmed various line items.

While property tax rates remain unchanged in the city of Lakeway and Bee Cave, Rollingwood and West Lake Hills raised property tax rates sightly for fiscal year 2020-21 to make up for shortfalls in other revenue streams such as sales tax, fines and fees.
