AUSTIN (KXAN) — After crews filmed parts of an episode of “Fear the Walking Dead” in Manor in February, they left damaged sidewalks, dirty curbs, and debris along the road, according to a county document.

The county is sending them a bill for $74,000.

Travis County Commissioners recommended approving the settlement Tuesday releasing the production company Stalwart Films from liability. The settlement of $74,000 will be certified and budgeted under TNR’s Road & Bridge funds center.

Filming took place on Feb. 28 on what was then called Braker Lane near East Metro Park. The road has since been renamed Petrichor Blvd.

Another costly problem is when production crews tried to power wash the road to clean it, the county says it also stripped off the road’s asphalt sealant and all reflective beads in the striping.

This isn’t the first time the show has filmed in the Austin area, as Central Texas has been their annual go-to filming spot for the past few years. Other shoots took place at Dell Diamond in Round Rock and at Southeast Metro Park in Del Valle.
