Civics 101

Local government has a huge impact on our daily lives — but it's often hard to understand. To help you make sense of it all, KUT News is bringing you Civics 101 — a series of stories about how things work in Austin — the week of May 20.

What's behind your property taxes? What is Central Health, and why should you care? Who's responsible when your power goes out? Check here for the answers to these questions.

Civics 101 is made possible by our sponsor League of Women Voters Austin Area.
