Citizens for Scenic Texas Highways

Residents and visitors once again are delighted by the season’s colorful splendor of bluebonnets bordering state and country roads throughout Llano County and leading into Burnet County.

The addition of brilliant Indian Paint Brush and Indian Blanket wildflower outcrops along Hill Country roadways will extend the annual wildflower attraction for weeks to come.

“It’s important to keep our roads good, as well as beautiful,” said Llano County Commissioner Peter Jones. “Those are just a few of the county’s objectives when it comes to roads,” he said.

In locally-contested races, there were many clear-cut winners, as well as several expected runoff situations (if the top candidates did not gather at least 50.1% or more of the votes for that position):
