Letter from Mayor Joe Bain

Dear Lakeway Citizens and Visitors:

Joe Bain photo - 2015 Welcome to the City of Lakeway website!  Whether you are using the website to obtain information about our City or to communicate with City officials and staff, I hope you find its contents useful and comprehensive.   As mayor of Lakeway, I thank you for living here, visiting here, or doing business here whether you are new to our city or have enjoyed it for many years.

I’ve been a resident of Lakeway since 1988, but my interest in the area started earlier than that when my aunt, Dr. Ruth Bain, built a weekend home here in 1971. During my career with SBC and AT&T that started in Houston in 1970, I transferred to Austin in 1988 with my wife, Nancy, and our two children. We found a home on the Airpark in Lakeway that fit our needs and moved to the city where we have enjoyed our life since!

I became involved with the Airpark, purchased the land from the Hillwood Development Corp. and, along with others, formed Lakeway Airpark Inc. to manage and run that asset. It is still a wonderful amenity that is available for use by the citizens.

I’ve worked on many City of Lakeway committees and commissions over the years and ran for City Council in 2009. I served on Council until my election as mayor on May 9, 2015. I am looking forward to working to manage growth so citizens may enjoy their lives here as I have for 27 years.

Lakeway is no longer a little city. We have grown to a population of about 14,000. There are many challenges we need to work through, and hopefully I along with the Council will succeed in keeping Lakeway a wonderful place to live!

I’d like to thank everyone for their support over the years, and I am looking forward to serving all of you and keeping our community the best it can be.

I invite you to contact me regarding any additional information you require. You can reach me by phone at 512-314-7502 or by email.

Your Mayor, Joe Bain
