Cottonwood Shores' splash pad, next door to the community center, awaits activity on a recent Friday afternoon. The city council Thursday agreed to let the pad open five days a week, with any increased water use to be absorbed in the Parks Department budget.

Cottonwood Shores city council members agreed Thursday to let the city’s parks department expand open days for the splash pad by two additional days. The catch is that any additional water use has to be paid for out of the parks and recreation budget.

The deadline for filings for city and school board elections in Texas is today, Friday, Feb. 17, and, as of Thursday, several contests had developed for the May 6 elections in Burnet County.

The mayors seats in Burnet and Granite Shoals are contested and the Meadowlakes and Highland Haven city councils will be on the ballot.

In cases where none develops, as may be the case in Bertram and Marble Falls, elections will not have to be held.

Marble Falls

In Marble Falls, Mayor John Packer filed for re-election but the other three incumbents, so far, are undeclared. They are Mayor Pro Tem Jane Mare Hurst, Place 2; Rachel Austin-Cook, Place 4 and Rayan Nash, Place 6.

Parks and Recreation Committee Chairman David Rhodes had filed for Place 2 and attorney Megan Klaeger had filed for Place 6.
