BY BRIAN RASH

In the Round Rock, Pugerville and Hutto area, there is only one active single-family rental com- munity called Legacy, which contains 83 homes available for rent.

During roughly the next two years, the market for rental homes in Williamson County will increase substantially due in large part to abundant growth in one area: the single-family rental community. Separate from rental homes owned by individu- als who act as landlords, single-family rental com- munities are essentially subdivisions of houses typically owned by one entity or company. Addi- tionally, all or most of the homes in the community are for rent, not for sale.

HIGHLIGHTS FROM THIS MONTH

FROM AMY: Our Annual Real Estate Edition is always popular, but with today's economic climate I know our readers are even more interested in how the local real estate market is aected. In addition to our usual hyperlocal reporting, this issue also includes information on residential and commercial real estate trends, home improvement tips and features on relevant local businesses. Amy Leonard Bryant , GENERAL MANAGER

Our mission is to build communities of informed citizens and thriving businesses through the collaboration of a passionate team. Our core values are Faith, Passion, Quality, Innovation and Integrity.

FROM BRIAN: While the concept of single-family rental communities—housing subdivisions where residents can only rent, not own homes—is not new to Central Texas, there are not many in our area. Read our front-page story to see that is about to change. Throughout Williamson County, more than a dozen of these communities are under some phase of advancement, and most of them will be in Round Rock, Pugerville and Hutto. Brian Rash, SENIOR EDITOR

Our purpose is to be a light for our readers, customers, partners and each other.

TRANSPORTATION UPDATES Hodde Lane realignment project still in design, negotiations stage

COMPILED BY CARSON GANONG, BRIAN RASH & CHLOE YOUNG

A project to realign what many residents refer to as a dangerous S-curve along Hodde Lane in eastern Pugerville is still in the design stage as of late June, according to Hector Nieto, Travis County public informa- tion ocer. However, local ocials involved with the road realignment are work- ing to speed up the project. The project is intended to realign Hodde Lane and extends from the roadway’s intersections with Cele Road on the south end and Speidel Drive on the north end. County information shows the project’s budget to be $6.2 million. However, in mid-June Nieto said he expects that price tag to change based on delays and any future costs that may be incurred. In addition to Travis County,

During a May 12 board of trustees meeting, Pugerville ISD ocials approved a formal resolution to call on Travis County to expedite forward movement on the project that will transform “the dangerous S-curve into a safe roadway.” “It is a major safety issue,” PfISD Trustee Jean Mayer said. Nieto said June 20 that county sta received the resolution from PfISD, and said all parties involved are working to complete the project as soon as possible.

Pflugerville ISD officials discuss measures to curb deficit for 2022-23

District officials are considering three tax rate options to reduce a projected deficit in the 2022-23 school year. The 2021-22 tax rate is $1.388. OPTION 1 $1.2446 tax rate: equals a $0.1434 decrease from previous year OPTION 2 $1.2646 tax rate: equals a $0.1234 decrease from previous year OPTION 3 $1.2846 tax rate: equals a $0.1034 decrease from previous year THREE SCENARIOS

million in expenses for the next school year, which would result in a roughly $12.8 million deficit overall without a VATRE and about $7 million with a VATRE. Included in the expenses is a substantial state recapture payment of about $17.68 million through a program com- monly referred to as Robin Hood. During the budget discussion, trustees agreed that a VATRE is one of the best options the district can utilize to stop the budgetary bleeding. Additionally, Land said there are several different scenarios within a VATRE that would result in varying deficits for the district. Those scenarios would result in a high-end deficit of about $7 million for a VATRE option that brings a $0.1434 decrease in the 2022-23 tax rate from the previous year’s rate of $1.388. A projected low-end deficit of $756,421 would result through a $0.1034 tax rate decrease from the

PFLUGERVILLE ISD District officials are considering various strat- egy options to mitigate a projected $12.8 million shortfall for the 2022-23 school year. The PfISD board of trustees heard some of those strategies at a June 16 meeting. PfISD Chief Financial Officer Jen- nifer Land walked the board through updated financial information for 2021-22 and financial estimates for the 2022-23 fiscal year. According to Land, one strategy for budget relief would be to initiate a tax ratification election for November, similar to the one the district held but that did not pass in November 2021. Land forecast $258.6 million in tax revenue for the 2022-23 school year without a voter-approval tax ratifica- tion election, or VATRE, and $263.2 million with a successful VATRE. Land projected roughly $271.4

Ocials OK two-year EMS contract with Allegiance Mobile Health PFLUGERVILLE After approxi- mately three months of discussion and negotiations, private ambulance service Allegiance Mobile Health will take over as Pugerville’s new EMS provider July 1. BY CARSON GANONG THE PATH TO ALLEGIANCE Pugerville sta have been working to provide a stable EMS provider for the city since late 2020. Some facts • Begins July 1, 2022, and ends June 30, 2024 • Contains options to renew for one-year subsequent terms • Replaces an agreement with Travis County ESD 2 that was in the planning stages • Comes at no cost to the city of Pugerville because Allegiance charges patients directly

about the latest contract with Allegiance Mobile Health include:

At a June 14 meeting, Pugerville City Council approved a two-year EMS contract with Allegiance. The motion passed in a 4-2 vote, with Council Member Rudy Metayer and Mayor Victor Gonzales voting no. Mayor Pro Tem Doug Weiss was not present for the vote. Prior to selecting Allegiance for EMS, the city was engaged in nego- tiations with both Allegiance and Travis County Emergency Services District No. 2. Throughout discussions on selecting a replacement for previ- ous provider Acadian Ambulance Services, council members have maintained that eventually transi- tioning to a city-run EMS program is a priority for Pugerville.

• Provides at least four ambulances within Pugerville city limits at all times • Requires response time of 7 minutes, 59 seconds at least 90% of the time

games any longer.” Ruiz said Allegiance representa- tives indicated during negotiations that they were “more than happy” to work with the city on a transition plan. Metayer said he voted no because he was hesitant to choose a private provider over a public one, a concern that Gonzales echoed. However, Council Member Jim McDonald said selecting Allegiance now would help establish a public EMS department in the long run.

“I feel that going with the private entity aords us the path to a munici- pal entity,” McDonald said. Allegiance took over the city’s ambulance services from Acadian on July 1, two weeks before the compa- ny’s contract would have expired on July 13, according to city sta. Until either party chooses to alter or end it, the contract with Alle- giance is set to automatically renew for another year upon completion of the initial two-year period and every year thereafter.

Several city ocials agreed that priority was the deciding factor in choosing Allegiance over ESD 2. At a recent joint meeting between Pugerville City Council and the ESD 2 Board of Commissioners, ESD 2 o- cials expressed reluctance to commit to helping initiate a transition to a city-run EMS. “Transition doesn’t seem to be a long-term goal for [ESD 2] as it is for us,” Council Member Ceasar Ruiz said. “We don’t have time to continue playing around with these
