The San Jacinto River Authority and the City of Houston have teamed up to implement flood mitigation strategies that will help prevent future flooding in HD 127. You can read the information below from both organizations to learn more specifics about the efforts in the area, including the lowering of Lake Conroe and a pre-release strategy for Lake Houston.
Please remember that the Harris County Flood Control District bond election is coming up. On August 25, one year from the landfall of Hurricane Harvey, we will head to the polls to vote on the bond. Below, you will find information about the upcoming election and proposed projects. Early voting begins next Wednesday, August 8, so be sure to get out there and vote early!
Additionally, I am pleased the the Texas Education Agency has provided accountability waivers to over 100 school districts that were affected by Hurricane Harvey. During this historic event, our school districts provided shelter, transportation, and resources to those who needed it. I am grateful that these efforts are being reflected in the accountability system for this past year.
As summer winds down, I hope that you and your family are staying cool and enjoying some time together. As always, if you need anything, please free free to reach out to my Capitol or District offices. Someone will always be there and will be happy to assist you.
