CAPCOG Executive Committee gets Congressional guest

Thursday, January 10, 2013

USRepRogerWilliams1-13The first session of CAPCOG's 2013 Executive Committee included a visit from newly elected U.S. Rep. Roger Williams, who introduced himself and welcomed the group as its Jan. 9 meeting and legislative forum got under way. 

Williams, representing the 25th Congressional district, will serve on the U.S. House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure and the House Committee on the Budget, joining fellow members of the North Texas delegation in the 113th Congress.

CAPCOG's Executive Committee convened at the Robert E. Johnson Legislative Conference Center in downtown Austin to elect officers, hear staff updates, review or approve selected agency business and discuss regional service priorities with state legislators. Topics included emergency communications, homeland security, air quality, solid waste management, law enforcement training, rural transportation, aging programs and economic development.

As CAPCOG's governing body, the 28-member Executive Committee - including three nonvoting legislators representing State Planning Region 12 - largely comprises city and county elected officials nominated and selected annually to provide direction to CAPCOG staff regarding program implementation, budgets and contracts, and general policies and procedures for managing the agency. Members meet the second Wednesday of each month at 10 a.m.

CAPCOG, serving Bastrop, Blanco, Burnet, Caldwell, Fayette, Hays, Lee, Llano, Travis and Williamson counties, has helped its member governments and organizations maximize opportunities and eliminate duplication on key regional issues for more than 40 years. Formed in 1970, the agency is one of 24 councils of governments in Texas.
