September 11, 2018

Harris County’s 2.5 billion dollar bond has passed, now what?  Karen and Jonathan talk about how projects will proceed now that the vote is in–many were well along in the planning, engineering and permitting stages.  They discuss the things they learned at the 23 public input meetings–there will be additional public meetings as the projects move forward.  We also talk about how we can stay informed–about the projects and also how Harris County Flood Control functions as a source of information that we need to know well before the next storm (that comes with a flood).
