HIGHLIGHTS FROMTHISMONTH

FROMAMY: Many in the community are now working from home full-time. For parents, it can be a challenge to be productive at work while simultaneously supporting our children as they adjust to e-learning. Thankfully, teachers are also working from their homes, finding creative new ways to reach students. Unfortunately, teachers are also the top reporters of child abuse, but they are not getting the same daily interaction with students to see signs of abuse. We are covering these important topics in our May issue, along with many more relevant stories on communityimpact.com.

FROMTAYLOR: As the effects of the coronavirus crisis ripple through Central Texas, impacts on development and construction are numerous and varied. Many new restaurants and businesses that had projected opening in April are suffering from permitting and construction-related slowdowns (see Pages 6-7). However, several area transportation projects are moving forward on schedule thanks to fewer drivers on the road as residents shelter in place (see Page 11).

For Williamson County, the number of reports dropped from 407 in March 2019 to 364 in March 2020— or by 10.57%. However, the center still interviewed about the same number of victims year over year, conducting 68 in March 2019 and 65 in March 2020. WCCAC Director of Community Engagement Tiffany Sturman said this drop is because of the virus. The center saw a higher number of reports in early March 2020 versus March 2019, but because there has been a reduction in reporting in mid- to late March, the number of interviews conducted also dropped, she said. Sturman said if the pandemic did not occur, the center was on track to conduct many more interviews in March 2020 than in March 2019. She added while the numbers are down in March, she fears the number of reports will be even lower in April when children are home for an entire month. In March, Round Rock, Pflugerville and Hutto ISDs announced extended school closures until at least May 4, to reduce the spread of the coronavirus. On April 17, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott announced schools will remain closed for the rest of the semester. “I anticipate the next two weeks will start to show the more drastic trend,” Sturman said to Community Impact Newspaper.

abused before their 18th birthday. With 7.4 million children residing in Texas, this would equal 740,000 child victims of abuse—without a global pandemic changing life in every aspect. Stannell said she fears the impacts from the coronavirus pandemic will increase stressors that could lead to more child abuse: Families are bound inside together all day. Parents are now teachers as well as providers and caregivers, often with few or no breaks. Some may have even lost financial stability, whether through a job or loss in investments. Stannell said she fears these factors will play a role in more child abuse occurring. But her biggest concern is for children stuck at home with their abusers, as 90% of child abuse victims know their abusers. “Physical abuse, we will really see amp up in times of extreme stress and pressure,” Stannell said. “[But] we’re really nervous about the kids that are suffering from sexual abuse. They’re home with their abusers, and they’re stuck in one place, so they can’t tell anyone, and they can’t get away from that situation.” Christina Green, chief advancement officer of the CACs of Texas, said in the state of Texas 60%-70% of child abuse is sexual, followed by severe physical abuse. She reiterated Stannell’s fears. “A lot of times we think about stranger danger, and that is someone outside the home,” Green said. “But a lot of times—actually the majority of the time—the child knows who the alleged perpetrator is, and it is oftentimes a family member or someone in the home.”

Teachers are the No. 1 reporters of child abuse in America, but with kids not in school due to the coronavirus pandemic, experts on the ground are seeing fewer cases reported but understand it does not mean less abuse is happening. In fact, they fear the opposite. Kerrie Stannell, Williamson County Children’s Advocacy Center CEO, said while the center usually receives an average of 20-30 reports of child abuse in the county a day, it is now receiving an average of eight to 10. The center provides assistance to children who have experienced physical or sexual abuse. As a nonprofit, the center works with law enforcement, child protective minimize trauma for survivors of abuse while other agencies conduct criminal investigations. Child abuse has always been an issue, Stannell said, and with children away from their No. 1 reporter of abuse, she knows abuse is still happening, just not being reported. But most of all, she fears in the current climate it could get worse. “The problem before [the coronavirus pandemic] was big,” Stannell said. “So I hope we don’t see this amplified to any degree.” The Children’s Advocacy Centers of Texas represents 71 CACs in the state serving 210 of the 254 counties in Texas. According to statistics by the organization, 175 Texas children are the victims of abuse every day. In addition, one in 10 children will be sexually service professionals and the county’s district attorney to

Green said it is common for the number of reports to go down when children are not in school for summer or holiday breaks because teachers are prominent reporters. She added that this is also the case during times of economic downturns and natural disasters. Green said that with coronavirus, statewide reports are down on average about 25%, but it can be as high as 50%-75% in some parts of the state depending on how restrictive movement is in certain communities. “Whenever kids are not in school or with other adults outside the home, we see reports go down, but we know that abuse is still happening if not increasing in incidence and severity,” Green said. 13

CITY HIGHLIGHTS ROUNDROCK Approximately 200 units of income- restricted senior housing could soon break ground in Round Rock. City council gave developer Cornerstone Associates LLC the green light April 23 to seek low-income housing tax credits from the Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs to help finance the project. PFLUGERVILLE Pflugerville City Council voted 6-1 on April 14 to approve a nearly $622,000 professional services agreement with CP&Y Inc. associated with the city’s upcoming Melber Lane roadway project. The scope of the project includes an alignment study; preliminary engineering; and the creation of plans, specifications and estimates for the realignment of Cameron Road and added lanes to Melber. HUTTO Hutto City Council unanimously approved the two final readings for a disabled persons tax exemption and an ad valorem homestead tax ceiling, or limitation, at its April 2 meeting. The two additional exemptions follow a $60,000 senior property tax exemption approved by council March 19.

FUNDING RELIEF

WILLIAMSONCOUNTY The coronavirus relief bill distributed $93.38 million to Williamson County, Judge Bill Gravell told Commissioners Court on April 28. The bill established the $150 billion Coronavirus Relief Fund, which will be used to assist states and local governments impacted by the pandemic. The funding can go toward medical expenses; public health expenses; and payroll expenses for public safety, public similar employees who are substantially dedicated to mitigating the coronavirus, among others. health, health care, human services and

ROUNDROCK In a move to prepare for possible future legal action against the Texas Comptroller’s Office, Round Rock City Council voted unanimously April 23 to retain the services of the Law Firm of Cindy Olson Bourland P.C. Comptroller Glenn Hager in January proposed a rule change that could cost the city of Round Rock at least $20 million in annual sales tax revenue. Under Hager’s proposal, sales tax revenue collected on internet purchases would be redistributed, routing tax revenue to the purchaser’s city rather than to the city where the online sale is received by the business. Dell Technologies, headquartered in Round Rock, receives and fulfills billions of dollars in online sales each year, and city officials have said the loss would be detrimental to its budget. “The rule would potentially have a very adverse impact on the city of Round Rock and, we believe, the state of Texas in general,” Round Rock City Attorney Steve Sheets said. The firm’s agreement with the city states that services could include “consultation and representation regarding proposed rule changes by the comptroller relating to local sales tax.”

Williamson County received $93.38 million in funding from the coronavirus relief bill April 23, which can cover the following expenses incurred during the pandemic:

ROUND ROCK CARES The city of Round Rock, the Round Rock Chamber, Dell Technologies and the Greater Round Rock Community Foundation launched Round Rock Cares on March 25. The fund, which initially began with $100,000, has raised nearly $400,000 and assisted 160 local businesses as of April 28. Round Rock Cares was designed to support Round Rock businesses that have experienced a direct, negative financial impact as a result of the pandemic. Funds allocated go toward a business’s operational expenses, such as utilities, rent and payroll. More than $1 million in financial assistance has been requested, the city confirmed in an April 14 news release. A second round of applications is being considered. “The chamber is proud to be part of this effort,” chamber President and CEO Jason Ball said. “After seeing the initial requests come through and recognizing that more resources were going to be needed, we wanted to move as quickly as possible to inject more resources into the fund so that we could provide more support to our small local business community.” 160 small businesses SOURCES: CITY OF ROUND ROCK, ROUND ROCK CHAMBER/COMMUNITY IMPACT NEWSPAPER $ 400,000 and assisted Round Rock Cares has raised nearly since March 25.
