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

1

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.
