The Austin-American Statesman reported on November 26 that one home reconstruction project taken on by the Bastrop County Long Term Recovery Team (BCLTRT) came to an end.
According to reports, the last home constructed by the team was given to Julie and Daniel Gutierrez. The Gutierrez’s house was part of the 133 houses built by the BCLTRT. The couple was one of the many people in Bastrop who lost their homes in the wildfire three years ago. Relatives, volunteers and friends gathered at Gutierrez’s newly built house on November 22 for the dedication ceremony. BCLTRT board president Christine Files stated that the funds used for the recovery program came from the American Red Cross, business donations, and religious organizations.
Unfortunately, many people in Bastrop County whose homes were ravaged by the wildfire are still homeless or struggling due to insurance companies that acted in bad faith.
