City of Bee Cave Home Rule Charter - Please Read the Charter and Vote

What is Home Rule Status?  When a city in Texas can prove a minimum of 5000 residents, they can choose to vote in a Home Rule Charter which means they can start creating their own rules instead of just going by the state rules of running the town.

The biggest thing that the City of Bee Cave will get from Home Rule is the ability to have a little more control over the area. They can annex property into the city limits without a request for annexation. They can control what businesses they do and don't want in town. They can make a car dealership, like the Coverts, take a hike to somewhere else. They can control the beautification of what exteriors of buildings look like. They can protect our Hill Country and our Dark Skies.

The next hurdle is passing the Home Rule Charter off to the voters.  There is a special election in Bee Cave on May 11, 2013. Everyone in Bee Cave needs to stand up and be heard with their vote! We need this to pass. We need to take more charge of our surroundings.

You can read the City of Bee Cave Home Rule Charter to learn more. It is losely based off of Horsehoe Bay's Charter, a city not too far West of Bee Cave. You can also read more from Impact New's story.
