Everything you need to know about living in Burnet — whether it’s how to set up your utilities, where to find the nearest hospital, or which internet providers are available where you live — can all be found in the new online Burnet Community Guide. Visit to find information about Burnet public and private schools, employment figures, population statistics, income levels, industries, and more.

The guide features stories about Burnet’s most popular attractions — a section that will grow as more stories are added.

Interactive icons across the middle of the page — or at the top if you are using a tablet or smartphone — present easy-to-use information about utilities, hospitals, schools, recreational options, and more. Click on one for details about each and save the information to a list or email it to yourself, family, or friends.

You’ll find direct links to daily news sources at and KBEY 103.9 FM Radio Picayune along with contact information for local services, organizations, agencies, EMS, police, fire, and more.

From your smartphone, you can touch a phone number and call. With another touch of the finger, directions will pop up to guide you to where you want to go.

There’s still more to come: Community pages are in the works for Horseshoe Bay, Llano, and beyond. That’s just part of what you’ll find at, the most comprehensive, interactive online news, vacation, and events publication in the Highland Lakes.
