June 2019 Mayor's Desk

It's summer time, which means that a lot of children are out and about playing. Please be watchful and observe our city's speed limits.

We had a great turnout for the meeting with representatives of LBC at the Houston Yacht Club regarding their dock and terminal construction on the Bayport channel. I thought that the meeting was very informative and well received by those attending.

Our "smart" water meters are currently being installed. At the time of writing this, roughly 230 meters have been put in the ground. The company is on target to finish the project earlier than anticipated. It may not seem like a big deal but these meters will save city staff about 100 hours a month.

I have been trying for several months to get council's approval to fund some minor improvements to Circle Park. We need to improve the restrooms, add a walking trail, improve the parking and repair the concrete around the gazebo. It would also be great to add a walking path between the tennis court, the gazebo and the playground. Please let council know that we need these improvements.
