What you are voting on
The only local item on the ballot comes after a petition by Ground Game Texas won enough signatures.
Labeled Proposition A on the ballot, voters will decide on the decriminalizing of small amounts of weed and the banning of no-knock warrants in one single vote.
While less than 4 oz of weed is already decriminalized in Austin, the proposition would cement the decriminalization further by putting it in city code. This would mean police could still seize suspected marijuana, but they would not be able to charge most suspects for a marijuana offense.
And the ban on no-knock warrants would mean police could no longer utilize the option to get a warrant and show up unannounced. KUT reports there were three times last year no-knock warrants were used by Austin Police.
On the statewide items, two constitutional amendments will be on the ballot.
Proposition 1 would reduce schools' property tax bills imposed on disabled residents or those over the age of 65.
Proposition 2 would raise the homestead exemption Texans can take on their school district property taxes from $25,000 to $40,000.
Austin FC head coach Josh Wolff is here to stay as the Club announced he signed a three-year contract extension.
Wolff, who was previously an assistant coach for the U.S. Men's National Team, will coach Austin FC through the end of 2025 under the new contract.
Wolff has been the Austin FC head coach since November 2019. In the team's first year, some hoped to oust Wolff as the team was at the bottom of the Western Conference. But this year, the team is at the top, ranking No. 3.
“This is still a young, growing Club but seeing our vision for Austin FC come to life on and off the field has been one of the great honors of my career. My staff and I will keep working every day to represent the city, and to develop our team both competitively and as human beings. The best is yet to come," Wolff said.
Austin police are investigating the killing of Moriah "Mo" Wilson after she was found with gunshot wounds inside an East Austin home.
Wilson, a gravel and mountain bike racer, was visiting Austin from Colorado in preparation for the Gravel Locos race on Saturday taking place in Hico, a small town 2 hours from Austin.
On Wednesday, her roommate came home and found Wilson unresponsive with "a lot of blood near her,” police said, on Maple Avenue near East 17th Street. Officers and EMS performed life-saving measures before she was declared deceased at 10:10 p.m.
The Travis County Medical Examiner's office conducted an autopsy and determined the official cause of death to be multiple gunshot wounds, and the manner of death was a homicide. It is being investigated as a suspicious death and as of Saturday, police said they have a person of interest.
Wilson, 25, recently had become a full-time biker after winning a slew of races in the past year.
This story was updated on May 15 to include that police have determined a person of interest.
