A recent double homicide in Tow and sporadic cases of theft in lakeside communities are the focus of the Lake Buchanan Community Alliance meeting on Monday, Feb. 27. It starts at 6:30 p.m. at the Lakeshore Branch Library, 7346 RR 261 in Buchanan Dam. 

Llano County Precinct 2 Constable Richard Harris will present information on how residents can stay safe.

“We figured if one neighborhood has issues (with theft), then others do, too,” LBCA Secretary-Treasurer Marci O’Brien told “If everybody knows, and it is reported, then the constable and (Llano County) Sheriff’s Office will be aware of what’s going on.”

Constable Harris is expected to speak for roughly 45 minutes on the subject of community safety. The meeting shouldn’t go longer than an hour, according to O’Brien.

The Lake Buchanan Community Alliance formed in September 2022 in an effort to address lease price hikes on waterfront property from the Lower Colorado River Authority. It has since coalesced into a collection of Lake Buchanan-area communities addressing a wide range of communal issues and interests.
