City Manager: Johnnie Thompson
On behalf of the City Council and Mayor, it is my pleasure to welcome you to the City of Meadowlakes. We are pleased that you have chosen to live in our community. Our beautiful city is located adjacent to Lake Marble Falls. The peaceful nature of our area, as well as government professionalism and our citizens’ involvement, make for a caring and friendly community.
The citizens of Meadowlakes have a great deal of pride in their city with many serving on the various commissions and committees of the City. The City is nearly a full service city providing fire, emergency medical services, police, water & sewer utilities, and building permitting services to its citizens. Fire and emergency medical services are provided via contracts with the Marble Falls Area Volunteer Fire Department, Inc. and the Marble Falls Area Emergency Medical Service, Inc. Both services are housed within the City of Marble Falls. Police protection and traffic control are provided by the Burnet County Sheriff’s office by utilizing off-duty Sheriff Deputies.
The City is unique in the fact that it is a gated community with privately owned streets and parks. The streets and parks are owned and maintained by the Meadowlakes Property Owners Association.
The City takes pride in providing some of the highest quality potable drinking water in the Highland Lakes and is currently in the process of installing additional storage facilities that, once complete, will provide adequate facilities for future growth. In 2007, the City determined that an effort should be made to secure the necessary land to provide an efficient and cost effective way for the disposal of treated wastewater and, in 2008, it purchased the Meadowlakes Golf Course from a private owner for this purpose.
City Council meetings are typically scheduled for the third Tuesday of each month at 5:00 p.m. We encourage you to visit our web site to confirm times and dates and to get more information about our City Council, Building Committee, Planning & Zoning, and POA meetings.
The City of Meadowlakes is operated under the Council-Manager form of government. The City is governed by a Mayor and five city council members. The City Council appoints the City Manager, who is responsible for carrying out council policy initiatives and for the day-to-day administration of the City. I am pleased to have been appointed the first City Manager of the City. My door is always open, so please feel free to drop by City Hall if you have any questions. You may reach me by calling City Hall at 830-693-6840 or by email at [email protected].
I hope, now that you are officially a part of Meadowlakes, you will feel the same community pride and appreciation about being a part of our City that I do.
