Bond on the ballot Harris County’s $1.2 billion bond is split into three propositions. Road and park funds will be allocated by precinct.

Harris County voters to decide on $1.2B bond

OVERALL

$100M: Public safety facilities $200M: Parks and trails $900M: Roads, drainage and transportation

$1.2B Total bond amount

BY RACHEL CARLTON

Harris County residents will vote on a $1.2 billion bond to fund public safety facilities, road maintenance and parks during the midterm elections Nov. 8. Voters can approve or reject three separate propositions: $100 million for public safety; $900 million for roads, drainage and multimodal transportation; and $200 mil- lion for parks. Historically, the county has proposed road and park bonds every six to eight years, most recently an $848 million bond in 2015. Commissioners were divided on whether to hold a bond election this year, voting 3-2 to place it on the ballot Aug. 19 with Precinct 3 Commissioner Tom Ramsey and Precinct 4 Commissioner Jack Cagle opposed. But Daniel Ramos, exec- utive director of the Harris County Oce of Management and Budget, told Community Impact Newspaper he believes the county needs to issue a bond because the 2015 bond will be almost fully expended by the end of 2023. “Folks are driving on unsafe … [and] poor-quality roads today. Our public safety personnel are in substandard facil- ities today. We have folks that we can take out of the ood plain today. And all of that requires funding,” Ramos said. “At the end of next year, we’re not going to have another funding source to continue to do projects.” CONTINUED ON 32

GOVERNMENT Montgomery County approves $397 million FY 2022-23 budget

Over 40% of Montgomery County’s fiscal year 2022-23 expenditures will go to law enforcement, according to the budget adopted Aug. 26.

McRae, the FY 2022-23 no-new-reve- nue rate was $0.3312. County officials previously cited a 5% increase in the cost of living as one factor leading to the calcu- lated rate. Other factors included a planned renegotiation in the county’s interlocal agreement for law enforcement services for The Woodlands Township. Inside the budget A total of 43.8% of the county budget’s general funding will be aimed at law enforcement, according to the county. While the total of $174.1 million is an increase from the previous year’s total of $170.9 million, law enforcement makes up a slightly smaller percentage of the budget in the new fiscal year. In addition, two new departments will receive budgets of over $500,000 each. The payroll department, which was created March 8 following the removal of some of County Treasurer Melanie Bush’s duties, has a budget of $597,743 and five employees. County Budget Officer Amanda Carter said the cost of the payroll department “did not even out” with positions set to be removed from the treasurer’s department. Bush’s department budget was reduced from $848,077 to $611,665. The other new department is the County Court at Law 6, which received $693,805 and five employ- ees. Judge Scharlene Valdez was sworn in Aug. 15 and began hearing cases Sept. 1.

FY 2021-22

Montgomery County’s approved fiscal year 2022-23 budget prioritizes funding law enforcement, including additional positions for the sheriff’s office and several county consta- bles. The $397 million budget was approved unanimously by commis- sioners at an Aug. 26 special session for the fiscal year from Oct. 1 to Sept. 30, 2023. County Judge Mark Keough, who had been absent for several work- shops due to illness but viewed the proceedings virtually, told Com- munity Impact Newspaper that the budget focuses on law enforcement, especially on the county’s shared border with Harris County. “My emphasis is on law enforce- ment, and [The Woodlands Township contract], which we had figured into the budget, is a huge expense, and that was part of it,” Keough said. The county budget will be funded by a $0.3742 per $100 valuation prop- erty tax rate. This rate is a decrease from the preliminary rate approved Aug. 9, which was $0.3764, as well as a $0.03 decrease from the previous year’s rate, according to data from the county tax office. However, the county was required by law to call the special session after the proposed tax rate exceeded its effective or no-new-revenue tax rate, which would produce the same amount of property tax revenue if applied to the same properties taxed in both years.

MONTGOMERY COUNTY TAXABLE VALUES VS. PROPERTY TAX RATES Montgomery County’s adopted tax rates have declined since FY 2018-19 as taxable property value has increased. However, the FY 2022-23 rate is above the no-new- revenue rate, meaning it generates more revenue than the previous year.

from Texas Children’s Hospital and Memorial Hermann Hospital have also contributed, Munson said. “We’re right on the doorstep of fully funding the playground,” Munson said. The playground itself will be mod- eled after the inclusive playground illustrated in “Louie’s Together Playground,” part of The Able Fables series, Public Works Project Manager Meagan Mageo said. The book itself is based on Louie and his interest in construction, Munson said. “Once all the funds are raised, then we will be ordering that playground equipment,” Mageo said. “So it is designed straight from that book.” A face-lift for The Depot Meanwhile, Tomball’s Historic Depot Plaza will be getting $150,000 in renovations in FY 2022-23. “It’s not really ashy,” City Manager David Esquivel said. “The $150,000 is going to do a lot of maintenance work that’s desperately

“We already have a playground picked out; we already have a splash pad picked out; and then [we are] hiring contractors,” Public Works Director Drew Human said. Inclusive playground Across from Matheson Park, an inclusive playground is planned at Juergens Park—inspired by Brad Munson’s son, Louie, who has dwarsm. Munson, a Chick-Fil-A franchisee, lives in Tomball. The city is contributing $100,000 toward the eort in FY 2022-23, Rogers said, while the rest of the funding is coming from community donations and grants. “We’re $100,000 away from fully funding it,” Munson said in a Sept. 7 interview. “And the full total is between $750,000-$800,000.” Among the donations, franchisees of the Chick-Fil-A Houston market collectively donated $100,000 to help build the playground, and grants

needed for the structure itself.” Some of the renovations include replacing the wood and painting. Of the city’s total $2.9 million in American Rescue Plan Act funds, $1.15 million remains unallocated. In January, city sta recommended the council allocate $527,000 to The Depot area for improvements, and discussion around allocating the remaining ARPA funds will resume in the next few months, Rogers said. “There’s been discussions of [an] additional pavilion, maybe some improvement for parking, some covered [areas] for the [Tomball] Farmers Market,” Esquivel said. In addition, the city is using $150,000 in the FY 2022-23 budget to fund the parks master plan. “The new master plan will be a comprehensive look at existing and future parks, trails, and recreation [and] leisure amenities that will involve the community and various stakeholders,” Rogers said.

With the scal year 2022-23 budget approved by Tomball City Council on Sept. 6, funds are set aside to renovate and improve several Tom- ball parks, including Matheson Park, Juergens Park and The Depot. At Matheson Park, the improve- ments will include four pickleball courts, a splash pad, an updated playground, improvements to the baseball eld and a loop trail, accord- ing to city ocials. In total, the projects at Matheson Park are expected to cost around about $1.8 million, Assistant City Manager Jessica Rogers said in an interview. Of that, $750,000 is a grant from Texas Parks & Wildlife Department the city was awarded in May 2021, according to a TPWD news release. City ocials said they expect to receive the grant funds by the end of September, with construction beginning shortly after and continu- ing throughout the winter.

“Citizenship brings with it so many privileges and responsibilities. ... I only ask that you choose to partici- pate fully in the civic institutions,” Johnson said during the ceremony. “Register to vote, make your voices heard, and volunteer your time and energy to improve your community.” While the ceremony was a rst for Tomball, Hogland said she hopes to continue working with USCIS to host future ceremonies; Tomball High School’s Naval Junior ROTC and LSCTomball were involved with the ceremony as well.

Candidates for U.S. citizenship take an oath of allegiance to the U.S. during the ceremony.

“It’s becoming a collaborative eort by the Tomball community, and we are very much excited to welcome new American citizens. … [To think these candidates will] go through such an important step and moment in their life and that will be happening in Tomball,” Hogland said in an interview ahead of the ceremony. Tomball Mayor Lori Klein Quinn gave the keynote address during the

naturalization ceremony. “Even though you renounced your former citizenship and pledged your loyalty to the United States, you do not give up your own his- tory; you do not give up your own culture. Those things you cherish from your past,” Quinn said. “Today you become a part of something great—America—and today America becomes more complete because of all of you.”
