150 new affordable housing units are coming to Bastrop and they'll be available for city employees.  City manager Lynda Humble told City Council 51% of employees can't afford to live in the city limits and some commute back and forth from as far as College Station, that's about an hour and a half commute. Humble said, for a one bedroom the monthly rent would be $916, 2-bed rooms is at $1099 and 3-bedrooms is now at $1270.
To be eligible, employees have to submit to background and credit checks every year, and no government assistance will be allowed for monthly rent payments.
