Fort Worth reevaluates Trinity River project, Troxclair unhappy with Austin water utility, penalties haven’t hurt superintendent payouts


After failing to comply with federal standards for funding, the City of Fort Worth will reevaluate its participation in the $1.16 billion Trinity River development project, now called Panther Island.

As Austin residents scaled back their water use Thursday, on the fourth day of a citywide water boiling order, a city council member questioned the city’s tardiness in warning people of a probable shortage of treated water.

Four Texas school districts last year lost nearly $400,000 in state funding as a penalty for their generosity to departing superintendents, according to records obtained by Texas Monitor. It’s part of a pattern that’s been going on for than two decades.
