NHA to Submit Comments for August 25th Bond Election

 

Harris County Commissioners Court has called a bond election for August 25, 2018, for the Harris County Flood Control District (HCFCD). Registered voters in Harris County will be asked to vote on what could be $2.5 billion in bonds for flood risk reduction projects throughout the county.

As part of their process, HCFCD is seeking input from the community via public meetings, and they have dedicated a portion of their website as a resource.
