“Hold Your Fire! It’s Flood Control!”

Harris County Flood Control District (HCFCD) needs your help. Hold your fire. Someone is shooting up their equipment on Taylor Gully. The District is performing a clean-out of the ditch to restore its conveyance so people won’t flood again, as they did on May 7th.

Harris County Flood Control is now trying to restore the conveyance of Taylor Gully, but vandals are shooting up their equipment.

Slowing Down the Job, Raising Expenses

Sandra Musgrove, Director of HCFCD’s Infrastructure Division, reports that at night, Flood Control places metal sheets over the windows of their equipment to prevent vandalism. But now, instead of throwing rocks, vandals have taken their game to the next level. They’re SHOOTING out the windows.

Harris County Flood Control asked me to communicate that this adds to the cost of jobs and slows them down. That increases people’s flood risk. Plus it’s just not neighborly. So please help.

Lock Up Your Guns, Report Suspicious Activity

Keep your eyes and ears open for suspicious activity. Chances are, anyone you see packing on Taylor Gully late at night is hunting for heavy equipment. However, I have noticed some Texas-sized bullfrogs now and then in Taylor Gully.

Seriously. It’s a crime to discharge a firearm within the City. And if caught, something like this could ruin a young person’s life.

So lock up your guns. Hold your fire. And please report suspicious activity to 911.
