The Bond Order language calling the August 25, 2018, Harris County Flood Control District Bond Election includes a provision that requires Harris County Commissioners Court to develop a process for the “equitable expenditure of funds.” This Bond Order was voted on and unanimously approved by Commissioners Court on June 12, 2018.
In response to this order, the Flood Control District has developed written guidelines adopted by Commissioners Court on August 27, 2019 to assist with the prioritization of the 2018 bond projects that have not started. There are several key facts to keep in mind:
- This effort will not remove or replace any project already listed on the Bond Project List
- This effort will not result in the moving of money from one project on the list to another
- This effort will not impact any bond projects already started
- The process will focus on documenting the logic to be employed for the prioritization of projects on the bond list that have not yet been started
