How does ‘Community Impact Newspaper’ decide what stories to write?

Many readers are curious how they, their business or organization can be featured in our newspaper.

The most important thing to know is that you cannot pay to have a particular article written. Our decisions to write stories about different topics are never influenced by our advertisers.

We also do not print article submissions from people outside our company. However, we love to receive ideas for stories from our readers. If you have an idea for a news report or business profile related to Round Rock, Pflugerville or Hutto, please email it to me. This is one of the best ways we come up with story ideas.

Another way we generate stories is by covering the Round Rock, Pflugerville and Hutto ISD boards of trustees and city council meetings. We often find out about new developments or policies from those meetings. Similarly, we learn about important topics in the community by attending local events and driving around the area to see what is happening.
