Were you unable to move your vehicles in order to take advantage of the last road cleaning? If so, don’t despair!
In addition to the road cleaning that the MUD has paid for in the past, Williamson county also performs road cleaning at their own discretion at no additional cost to us. The advantage of this is that MUD residents may be able to get their roads cleaned without tapping into the District’s tax revenues to accomplish it. The down side is that the county does not announce it ahead of time, so if cars are parked on the street when the sweepers pass by, that area won’t be cleaned. Road cleaning falls under Williamson county’s Seal Coat program for road resurfacing, and here is what the county’s web site says about it:
The street was swept, but why is there still a lot of gravel scattered around?
We do not tow vehicles for the seal coat operation. If residents are unable to assist us by moving vehicles off the street, the sweepers will be unable to vacuum the rock from under them. Loose gravel also tends to accumulate at low spots, on the outside of curves and at intersections; however, all of this typically amounts to less than a gallon of gravel per block, and we would be glad to clean up remaining rock. If concerned residents will contact the resurfacing hotline, we will come back to sweep up any excess rock (512-943-3393) within 24 – 48 hours.
What about the areas skipped where cars were parked?
We ask that each resident help maintain the quality of their street by moving vehicles parked on the street in advance of the seal coat work. In the cases where residents have not moved their vehicles, seal coat production will be reduced and we will be back with a hand crew to cover those spaces at a later date. This will be more expensive and result in fewer streets that can be seal coated that year.

The MUD does place signs in the district as well as notifications on various web and media outlets when we do our street cleaning, so keep an eye out for those events as they are needed in the future, but in the meantime, thanks to Williamson county for helping us keep our streets clean at no extra cost!
