Are charity or fund-raiser car washes allowed while we're in water restrictions?

Yes, they can be held on the property's designated outdoor watering day, during the allowed times, while we're in Stage 1 or 2 water restrictions.  For example, if the car wash will be held in a bank parking lot, it can be held on a Friday or a Tuesday before 10 a.m. or after 7 p.m.

If the car wash is held at a commercial car wash facility, then it can be held any day at any time. Commercial car washes are exempt to the restrictions since they control the runoff from the property and use more efficient equipment to wash the vehicles.

Aren’t the cameras inflexible? If an officer was at the corner and saw an infraction, they might not write a ticket based on the circumstances.

Actually the cameras provide an additional safeguard. Before a ticket is ever issued, a number of individuals – including a Round Rock police officer – review the footage to ensure that each ticket is prosecutable in court. Also, drivers issued a ticket will have the ability to review the actual photos at Photonotice.com and can clearly see why they were issued a ticket. Photo enforcement cameras have been in use for more than 20 years and, in that time, the technology itself has proven extremely accurate and reliable.

Aren’t vehicle owners who are issued a photo enforcement-generated ticket for red light running or speeding guilty until proven innocent?

Photo enforcement citations are merely a summons. Those receiving a ticket have an opportunity to go online at Photonotice.com to review the alleged infraction. If they are not the driver of the vehicle, they are able to nominate the correct driver. Additionally, those issued a ticket have an opportunity to contest their ticket in a court of law, just as they can with a traditional traffic ticket.

Can 5-year-olds get the RRISD cards?

Yes.

Can alcohol can be available at a special event or block party?
Yes, generally, but you have to follow the requirements of the appropriate agencies, such as the Texas Alcohol Beverage Control Board.
Can citizens ride out with police officer on patrol?
Yes, citizens can ride with police officers on patrol. Contact the Police Department at 512-218-5500.
Can I call the Municipal Court and find out how many warrants I have outstanding against me in the State of Texas?
The Municipal Court can only talk to you about the cases filed against you in Round Rock Municipal Court. To find out about other charges, you must contact the court of jurisdiction in each specific case. Many times contacting the Department of Public Safety for the names and phone numbers of the area Justice of the Peace may be helpful if a State Police officer issued you the citation.
Can I discharge fireworks in the city limits?
It is illegal to posses or discharge fireworks within the city limits of Round Rock.  We are not aware of any locations in the area that will allow you to safely discharge any fireworks.

The City of Round Rock Parks and Recreation Department presents a July 4 fireworks show as part of Frontier Days at Old Settlers Park. We encourage citizens to enjoy this professional fireworks show.
Can I file a report if I get bitten by a dog?

Yes. 

 If you’re bitten by any animal, report it to Animal Control immediately by calling 218-5500.

Can I fill my swimming pool when we are under water restrictions?
Yes, you can fill your swimming pool on your designated outdoor watering day. Click watering schedule to confirm your designated watering day.
Can I find out if I have a warrant for my arrest over the phone?
Yes. Contact Municipal Court at (512) 218-5480.
Can I get my blood pressure checked at the Fire Department?
Yes, you can have your blood pressure checked at any fire station from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m.
Can I get my event/business listed on Channel 10?
Channel 10 is used  for government related events and information only.

Call Will Hampton, Communications Director, at 512-218-5409 or 512-218-5400 to find out if your event or business qualifies.
Can I pressure wash my house while we are in water restrictions?
Yes, you can pressure wash your house on your designated watering day. A commercial company that provides pressure washing as its main business is not restricted to specific watering days.
Can I use a slip-n-slide or other water toy, or inflatable water-using piece of equipment while we're in water restrictions?
Yes, provided there is no water run-off from the property where it's being used.  Use it in the grass or other pervious area so the water soaks into the ground.
Can I wash my vehicle when we are in water restrictions?

Yes, you can wash your vehicle at your residence on your designated watering day, or you can take it to a commercial car wash facility any time.

Commercial car washes are not restricted during water restrictions because they're more efficient than washing a vehicle at a private residence.  They capture and treat the dirty, soapy water onsite, or through the wastewater lines, rather than letting the water drain into the storm water system, which is what happens when vehicles are washed at home.  The commercial equipment uses more pressure and less gallons of water per minute than home washes, so overall they use less water per vehicle.

Can non-citizens get a permit for an event or parade planned inside the city limits?
Non-residents are subject to the normal provisions of the City's ordinance and procedure.
Do I have a particular officer working in my neighborhood?
Yes. Please view the Police Department’s sector beat map.
Do I have to be part of some organization to get a special event, block party or parade permit?
No.
