Simonton Community Church Meeting on Bessie's Creek Flood Mitigation

On Saturday morning, a standing room only crowd met at 10am at the Simonton Community Church for a community meeting regarding flood mitigation and potential solutions and sources of funding for the Bessie's Creek watershed.

Commissioner Meyers and staff were joined by State Representative Dr. John Zerwas, as well as County Attorney Roy Cordes, Fort Bend County Drainage District Chief Engineer Mark Vogler, Fort Bend County Assistant Engineer Rick Staigle, and Scott Wieghat from Fort Bend County Road & Bridge, as well as several mayors and city council members from the watershed.

During the meeting, a short visual presentation was made to attendees and that presentation is available here in PDF format for download.

Video of the meeting was recorded and placed online on Facebook at the "Fulshear Forum" community page. Many attendees submitted written questions that were not answered in the meeting. Those questions from residents which were not answered because of the time will be answered by individual contacts by phone or email or office visits to answer all the submissions.

For any questions or to follow up on topics from the community meeting - please contact the Precinct 3 office at 281-238-1400.
