- I have asked Gov. Greg Abbott to have the state government use part of the Texas Economic Stabilization Fund to aid Houston’s flood recovery. The letter can be viewed at: http://houstontx.gov/govtrelations/rainy-day-letter.pdf Using part of the $10 billion-plus in the Rainy Day Fund is appropriate for the response to a natural disaster such as Harvey that wreaked significant damage and caused local governments to incur unanticipated costs far beyond their budgets. Without aid from the state fund, the city will be forced to increase its property tax rate on a temporary, emergency basis for 12 months to help pay its recovery bills. The mayor is seeking City Council approval for an increase that would cost the owner of an average Houston dwelling $4.03 per month for a year. The use of the Rainy Day Fund is also appropriate to help fix the damage from the 27 trillion gallons of rain that fell on Texas from Hurricane Harvey. #hourecovers #harveyrelief

- #Repost @justinjames99 ・・・ It's extremely difficult to have to watch the events of Hurricane Harvey unfold on TV and not be able to get back to Houston to help with the recovery efforts. I've set up a fundraiser so that we can raise as much money as possible to help our communities and the families of our great city rebuild. Any donation that you can spare, no matter how large or small, no matter what city or state you live in, is greatly appreciated. We will come out of this stronger than ever. www.YouCaring.com/JJWatt #TexasForever

Located between downtown and Taft Street, alongside Buffalo Bayou Park, the parking meters transform once-muted objects into art pieces that all Houstonians can enjoy. “One of Houston’s greatest assets is its culture and public art,” stated Sylvester Turner, Mayor of Houston. “As a city we seek to engage our large population of working artists to create pieces that speak to each neighborhood and will add an imaginative and fun enhancement to our city.” . . . . . @celanbouillet @houstonartsalliance @texansforthearts @americans4arts @parkhouston @ellencohenhou #art #publicart #civicart #houston #htown #percentforartprogram #HoustonArtCollection #artist #visualartist #park @buffalobayou
