Security is going to be tight for President Obama in Austin, and some residents are being forced to stay inside.
The Austin Music Hall is president Obama’s second stop in Austin Friday. So a Secret Service agent made his rounds around the area talking with businesses and the 360 Tower. After that talk, management at the Tower sent residents an email describing the situation. It talked about how 3rd Street will be closed along with Nueces to traffic. It also mentioned one restriction.
“The biggest surprise was we’re not supposed to go out on the balcony,” resident Robyn Dodge said.
The email said “No one on the balconies from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Friday afternoon.” Dodge lives on the 36th floor and does have a slight view of the Music Hall.
