CAPCOG honors Stephens with Parmer Volunteer Award

Thursday, January 11, 2018

CAPCOG presented Cathy Stephens, a Travis County Transportation and Natural Resources senior planner, with its Phill Parmer Volunteer Service Award in December for her many years of service on the Clean Air Coalition Advisory Committee and her contributions to improving regional air quality.

Stephens first joined the advisory committee in 2001 while working with the Capital Area Metropolitan Planning Organizations, but continued to contribute to the group after being hired by Travis County. As an advisory committee member, she helped draft several regional air quality plans including the current Ozone Action Plan. She has helped pass idling legislation and played a vital role for Travis and Williamson counties becoming the only counties in the country to voluntarily implement a mandatory vehicle inspection and maintenance program.

The Phill Parmer award is named after CAPCOG’s longest serving Aging Advisory Council member from Llano County. He also volunteered as an ombudsman throughout the region and advocated for senior issues in the state legislature.
