From monitoring floodwaters to performing high water rescues to having to dispel social media rumors the City of Deer Park personnel were busy during Hurricane Harvey. At Wednesday’s Rotary Club meeting, city leaders discussed the city’s and community’s response to one of the worst storms in the nation’s history.
The rain left behind by Hurricane Harvey has created large areas in Harris County where mosquitoes can lay their eggs.
To address increasing numbers of mosquitoes and the risk they pose to the recovery effort and public health, the U.S. Air Force Reserve’s 910th Airlift Wing flying modified C-130 cargo planes staged out of Kelly Air Force Base in San Antonio will be conducting an aerial spray operation beginning Thursday evening, Sept. 14 and may take more than one day. The plan is to spray approximately 600,000 acres by air, weather permitting.
The meeting will begin at 7:30 PM in the City Hall Council Chambers, and the public is encouraged to attend.
“On behalf of the entire Deer Park Volunteer Fire Department, we would like to thank the citizens of Deer Park for their incredible generosity during the ‘Fill the Boot’ campaign,” said Justin Crow, DPVFD Deputy Chief, Station 2. “Altogether, we were able to raise $6,572.34, which will go to the Muscular Dystrophy Association to aid in their fight against neuromuscular diseases. Thank you, Deer Park!”
City Council approved almost all items on its Tuesday agenda, but opted to table a measure regarding the adoption of standards of care. The meeting included calling two public hearings on the proposed tax rate.
