6:00 PM
Trini Mendenhall Community Center

Please note: The proposed redistricting map will not be included in the presentation. While I would prefer maps to be presented so that you can offer your feedback, this meeting is to get your input on what you would like to see before the proposed maps are drawn. I ask that you come to reiterate the message I have been advocating for: keep our neighborhoods together!

CIP: This is the Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) that includes the larger drainage/paving and traffic projects. Please come to hear more about the status of the projects I am fighting for in our community.

Annual Water Rate Adjustment

City Ordinances require certain automatic annual adjustments to the water and wastewater rates based on inflationary indices. The one-year inflationary index for our area is 4.3%. The City of Houston population increased by 1.3%. The inflationary index of 4.3% when combined with the population increase of 1.3% results in an automatic annual water and wastewater rate increase of 5.6% on April 1, 2022.

This year, in addition to the 5.6% automatic annual rate adjustment, Ordinance No. 2021-515 adopted the 2021 Water & Wastewater Cost of Service Rate Study, which allows for new annual rates over a 5- year period. I voted against this ordinance to increase the water rate. New rate tables can be hound at www.HoustonWater.org.
