'Tis the season to be with family and friends and on your next trip, check our new technology on www.fly2houston.com that lets passengers know wait times for security checkpoints at both George Bush Intercontinental (IAH) and William P. Hobby (HOU) Airports.

The new wait time tool shares a view of processing time with the following: Green means a 10 minute wait or less; Yellow is 10 to 15 minutes; and Red is more than a 15 minute wait.

Recycle Political Yard Signs

Whether the candidates you were supporting won or lost on Election Day, don't just toss their yard signs into the trash!  The Environmental Service Center at 11500 S. Post Oak Lane will accept them for recycling -- at no additional charge to City of Houston residents.

The city would rather that yard signs be taken to the ESC instead of placed in the green recycling bins or thrown in the trash, because the city is recovering them separately from the regular recycling stream.

 

Security Alert—Scammer Returns

October 28, 2012. The Hispanic-looking male now calling himself “Gino Marquez”, the subject of an alert posted in early September about a fraud incident in the 4300 block of Firestone, has been sighted again on October 27 in Willow Meadows, this time in the 4800 block of Knickerbocker.  Now he is touting numerous types of repair services, not necessarily roofing repairs as before.  Note that this time he has behaved rather aggressively, following the homeowner into the back yard and wanting very much to enter the house.

Keep your eyes out for this man, do not let him into your house or do business with him, and alert the Willow Meadows Security Patrol at 713-447-0200 if you see him.  Please try to observe his license plate number.  We need to ID this person so that the fraud case against him from early September can be advanced.

“Gino” is 20-25 yrs old, 6-ft 1-in tall, 210 lb, spiky black hair, light mustache, text tattoo on one arm, driving a 2009-2010 white Ford F-150 pickup, perhaps with Alabama plates, a tool box, and a covered bed.

 

HCDE holds line on tax increase

The Harris County Department of Education voted to adopt the effective tax rate for 2012 - which is the rate that would provide HCDE with approximately the same amount of revenue it had last year on properties taxed in both years.  For the average taxpayer this means the rate will be closer to 1% higher than last year, not the almost 8% increase HCDE was originally considering. (While total revenues to HCDE should be the same as they were last year, not including new properties added to the tax rolls, the rate increased slightly due to a decrease in property values.)

Board members who voted FOR the lower rate:
