The Round Rock City Council will consider a resolution during its Nov. 18 meeting that would have the city sign onto a statewide opioid settlement. Signing onto the settlement would allow the city to receive a maximum one-time payment of $475,992 to fund opioid abatement programs locally.

These funds come as part of the settlement agreement entered into by the state of Texas, manufacturer Johnson & Johnson, as well as three distributors, according to city documents. Political subdivisions in the state, such as counties and municipalities, can sign onto the agreement and receive a portion of the monies.

Williamson County has already signed onto such an agreement and is slated to receive a maximum of $1.19 million. Hutto also signed onto the $26 billion settlement in September, when a similar resolution was brought before council.
