Hi there our dog escaped our back yard today and we wanted to report him missing on this page if possible as well as the newsletter and website. My name is Tim and my wife’s name is Amanda and we live on cherrywood. He’s a Shih tzu and Maltese mix named Louis and is white with light brown spots. He’s about 8 pounds and has medium length fur. Please let me know what else I need to provide or do to help spread the news. Thanks!
Summer is here! It is my understanding that a few vehicles were vandalized this past week. Whether they were egged or someone is walking by and trying the doors to see if one opens.
Please let this serve as a reminder to double check the following every night:
1. Doors are locked
2. Garage doors are shut
3. Fence gates are shut and/or locked
4. Automobiles are locked and, if possible off the street
5. Leave outside lights on at night
6. If you have an alarm, keep it on
7. Keep an eye out for your neighbor-see something suspicious, report it
8. Lock your utility boxes
9. If you live by a vacant home, whether foreclosed or for sale, watch for any unusual activity, then report it
Again, we have to look out for one another and if we see or hear anything call the police, their number is 512-268-3232. Keep that number handy, as when you dial 911 it takes some time for them to transfer the call. This way, you can dial KPD directly.

FYI for those who park blocking the sidewalk, I just received this from KPD:
We wish to inform the public on a matter that has recently been received by our department concerning parking violations within residential areas throughout the city. Recently, we have been receiving numerous complaints regarding the encroachment or obstruction of sidewalks throughout the city’s residential areas. It appears the complaints stem from motorists parking their vehicles in their driveways, but blocking the sidewalk or use of the sidewalk with their vehicles.
We wish to inform the public that this is a violation of the Texas Transportation Code, Section 545.302, which prohibits motorists from parking their vehicles on a sidewalk. The issue becomes especially problematic as it may impede or interfere with persons with disabilities, or those with children in strollers, from being able to use the sidewalk due to vehicles blocking their path. Pedestrians who cannot use the sidewalk due to improperly parked vehicles have to detour their paths into the street, which could cause an unsafe situation.
It is our intent to educate the public on the matter, prior to taking enforcement action. It is our belief and hope that law abiding citizens will correct the issue voluntarily in these circumstances. Unfortunately, if the issue persists, Officers will be assigned to take enforcement actions throughout the city. We ask that our citizens help us out in this matter, and continue to report violations to us when they observe them.
Thank you for your time.
Lieutenant Andre Marmolejo
Kyle Police Department.
