Water, water everywhere getting more expensive for residents

CROSBY – As the San Jacinto River Authority is coming under criticism for setting prices higher for raw water both Newport Municipal Utility District (MUD) and Crosby Municipal Utility District (MUD) are facing issues related to supplying clean, inexpensive water.

According to Bloomberg Law, a pair of Texas Utility companies have alleged that San Jacinto River Authority violated the Sherman 1890 Antitrust Act after the Authority increased the price of wholesale raw water. San Jacinto River Authority (SJRA) was established in the 1930s to manage the water resources of the San Jacinto Basin. The suit accuses SJRA of fixing prices and monopolizing. This all came after the announcement that the River Authority would raise rates related to changes in the under groundwater rates ( aquifer) conservation rules established by the Lone Star Ground Water Conservation District in 2006.

Districts must move much more to surface water according to subsidence laws.

At a meeting last Friday, the Board of Newport MUD voted to increase the water bill by $35 following the residents voting down a $70,000,000 bond last election day.

Crosby MUD board has passed a $3.25 Million dollar bond to be done December 1 and due August 2039.

Harris County Clerk’s office opens new annex

Harris County Clerk’s Office opens new Jim Fonteno Annex location at 14350 Wallisville Road.

(Houston, TX) – Elected officials came together today for the grand opening of the new Jim Fonteno Harris County Clerk’s Office Annex located at 14350 Wallisville Road. Dozens attended the ribbon cutting made possible by Harris County partners and the North Channel Area Chamber of Commerce.

“We are very pleased that we can offer our services to area residents that otherwise had to travel far to obtain personal records,” said Harris County Clerk Dr. Diane Trautman. “It also made sense to open an annex here since this building already houses other county offices.”

With this new addition, the Harris County Clerk’s Office now has 11 locations throughout county. Residents can obtain deed information, marriage licenses, birth certificates and other personal records at the office most convenient to them.
