Sunset Valley was founded in 1954 as a small rural community a few miles from the Texas Capitol. Today, it is surrounded on all sides by the City of Austin and is often regarded as simply one of the extended neighborhoods of South Austin. In reality, it is a wholly independent municipality that boasts a number of unique characteristics. The City Council is currently seeking applicants for the City Administrator position. For more information on the position and the community, please see the attached brochure.
