Brays Bayou Association "Special Meeting"

The Brays Bayou Association "Special Meeting" scheduled for tonight, Friday the 15th at 7:00 at The Gathering Place, 5310 South Willow Drive is proceeding as scheduled.  The BBA is an appointed member of the Harris County Flood Control Task Force (an advisory board to HCFCD and Harris County Commissioner's Court) and is a Bayou Preservation Association Bayou Watershed Representative for the Brays Watershed.  We want to hear from you regarding anything that you feel is important, so we can take it back to the above mentioned entities with emphasis.

 

DPS Mobile Location at MCIA Office

The Texas Department of Safety will be setting up their mobile location at the MCIA office to assist Meyerland area residents with the replacement of lost or damaged Texas drivers licenses and state ID’s.  As thoughtfully coordinated by our State Representative, Sarah Davis, DPS will office out of our location Wednesday and Thursday this week (September 13-14) from 10:00 am – 5:00 pm.

This service is available for those who have a valid Texas drivers license or state ID, or whose license or ID has been expired for less than 24 months.

The MCIA office is located at 4999 West Bellfort Houston, TX 77035.

Use of Temporary Structures During Flood Reconstruction

Understanding the need to respond to the flood event, the MCIA Board of Directors has voted to allow the temporary use of mobile/motor homes, trailers, and temporary storage units according to the following guidelines:

  • The lot being used must have a home under repair for flood damage.
  • The temporary home/storage unit must be place on the driveway of the home and not in the street (exceptions may be made on a case by case basis).
  • If the mobile home is to tie into the city’s sewer system, it must be done per permit.

Mobile/Motor Homes:  Allowed on lots affected by flooding and under repair until December 31st, 2017.

Temporary Storage Units: Allowed on lots affected by flooding through March 31st, 2018.

 

Application Fees Waived

Effective immediately, the MCIA Board has waived all construction application fees through March 31, 2018

 

Kolter Update

HISD announced Thursday, Aug. 31, that HISD staff will return to schools to begin work on Tuesday, September 5th. Teachers will return for a work day on Friday, September 8. The first day of school for all students has been set for Monday, September 11.

There has been NO OFFICIAL word from HISD regarding the specific status of Kolter Elementary or its start date. The message below is an excerpt from what was shared from the Kolter Principal on Friday, Sept 1 (before 9:20am). 

Happy Friday, Kolter family! 

As we head into our first post Harvey weekend, I have a couple of quick updates: 

Uniforms and Meals: 

Students will not be required to dress in school uniforma attire during this first semested. We will revisit the uniform topic in January. All HISD students will be provided three, free meals a day for the coming year. More information around Houston's ISD meal plan can be found on the HISD website. 

Back to School (this is important):

As stated by the distric yesterday, all students are to return to school Monday, September 11. As of right now, right this minute, I have heard nothing about our campus being moved elsewhere or our students being split among campuses that have availability. Since I have heard NOTHING about that, I would advise that we move forward with that mindset. I had said over and over this week that my goal is to have our family back together, on our campus, for this school year. It remains my goal and priority going forward. The building did have significant impacts, but there has been a team of 50+ people there drying it out, cleaning it our and getting ready for our return. I have also promised that when and it information changes, gets updated or is of immediate significance, I will tell you. As I return to work this coming Monday, myself and my leadership team will be moving forwad with this above plan in place. 

Continued love and strength to all of you, 

Julie Dickinson, Principal

 

Also note that TEA has offered a waiver of all missed school days through September 1. Any additional missed days are evaluated on a per district basis. This means that HISD must apply for the waiver and these days will not need to be made up during the school year.
