Residents give Pct. 2 feedback on flood concerns

Kris Banks, Precinct 2 Policy Analyst, listens to residents as Jerry Ikes makes his contribution.

HIGHLANDS – Gretchen Knowles and Kris Banks with Harris County Commissioner Adrian Garcia’s Precinct 2 were the hosts for a feedback session held at the San Jacinto Community Center here on Monday. About 20 residents turned out to offer their advice on what to do about flooding in the future.

This meeting was called “Let’s Talk About Flooding” and asked what residents see as the future of flood control for northeast Harris County. Specifically, a Flood Advisory Board was formed by Precinct 2 Commissioner Adrian Garcia to seek answers to three questions. Those questions are: what is the biggest impact of flooding that you face; what is your vision for flood control mitigation; and what should be the priority for flood repairs and improvements? The Advisory Board would then incorporate the community concerns from Precinct 2 residents for flood mitigation, meet with varied local, state and federal entities to understand their ongoing efforts and challenges on projects, and advise Commissioner Garcia on how best to address flooding.

HIGHLANDS: Car runs stop sign, hits boy on ATV

A 10-yr-old boy riding the ATV seen above left, was struck by the Honda at the right on Sunday afternoon, about 2:30 pm. The boy was LifeFlighted to the hospital. He flew through the air about 100 feet, according to witnesses, and was at first unconscious, but was awake and in critical condition when transported.

Witnesses said that two cars were speeding southbound on Begonia Street, and allegedly ran the stop sign. The boy was riding his ATV on Thorn Street, headed west. Deputies said that the Honda seemed to be chasing another car, and they are searching for that driver. The driver of the Honda initially left the scene, but returned and was being questioned. So far no charges have been filed. Any witnesses are asked to call 713-222-TIPS.
