On his latest blog post, Mayor Friedberg states that “the Harris County Commissioners Court voted yesterday to authorize the Flood Control District to engage in formal negotiations with us on an interlocal agreement.  This is a hugely significant development for Bellaire as we seek to mitigate the regional contributors to our flooding problem that we would never be able to tackle on our own, and are also what have the greatest impact on us in more extreme rainfall events.

The Mayor said, “Commissioners Court authorization to negotiate is the first of a two-step approval process.  Now that we’ve reached this point with the County, we’ll also be working with TxDOT on getting an interlocal agreement finalized with them.”
