Dear Editor:

My name is Thomas. I am almost an Eagle Scout. I think we should change the way we manage garbage around Prime Stop on Mills Branch Road. There is lots and lots of trash left out on the field and greenbelt near it. I think things need to be changed! We could install more trash cans and put up signs in the field.

Dear Editor:

I want to make you aware of an important issue arising from our Harris County Commissioners Court meeting recently. Moments after rejecting my proposal for a property tax cut, which was seconded by Commissioner Steve Radack, a majority of Commissioners Court voted instead to raise your property tax rate to the maximum amount allowed by law without going to the public for approval for the increase. Commissioner Radack and I voted against this tax increase; County Judge Lina Hidalgo and Commissioners Rodney Ellis and Adrian Garcia voted in favor. If given final approval, your new tax rate would be 65.26 cents per $100 assessed valuation of your home. The final tax adoption hearing is Oct. 8 at 10 a.m. to allow you and your neighbors to weigh in on this important decision before the final vote. The hearing will be before Harris County Commissioners Court on the ninth floor of the Harris County Administration Building at 1001 Preston in downtown Houston. I encourage you to make your voice heard on this decision. You can do that by attending one of these hearings or by writing or calling my office and/or Judge Hidalgo, who also represents you on Commissioners Court. My telephone number is 832-927-4444 and you may email me at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. Judge Hidalgo’s telephone number is 713-274-7000, and her email address is This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. If you would prefer to mail her, her address is Suite 911, 1001 Preston, Houston, TX 77002.

R. Jack Cagle, Commissioner
Harris County Precinct 4
