To our friends and neighbors in District G:
Dear Friends:

I hope you have enjoyed a safe and fun summer with friends and family. Things were busy at City Hall over the past few months with passage of the city's operating and capital improvement budgets. Several important construction projects are either in progress or being planned for District G and this newsletter will provide you with an update.
 
Addressing the city's pension challenges is a primary focus for this fall. Mayor Turner plans to have agreements with the municipal, police and fire pension boards by December in time to head to the state legislature in January. The unfunded pension liability is currently $5.5 billion and growing, and the city's annual pension payments continue to crowd out other city services. I look forward to working with the mayor and my colleagues to bring meaningful pension reform to the city in the coming year.
 
Also on the financial front, City Council approved a contract yesterday with an outside consulting firm to prepare a 10-year financial plan. Rating agencies have demanded the city have a plan to address its challenges - more on this later in the newsletter.
 
Please remember my staff and I are here to advocate for you at City Hall. As you may know, I spend most Tuesday evenings at George's Pastaria, 1722 South Dairy Ashford, and I invite you to stop by and visit. Please check with my council office Tuesday afternoon or check my Twitter feed (@TravisDistrictG) to make sure I will be there. One of the best parts of this job is to meet new friends and neighbors.
 
It is an honor to serve you.
 
Sincerely,
 
Greg Travis
USS Houston Decommissioning Ceremony

  
On Friday, August 26, 2016, Council Member Travis attended the decommissioning ceremony of the USS Houston (SSN-713) at Naval Base Kitsap-Bangor in Washington. Since World War I, sailors of four vessels carrying the USS Houston name have served our nation with honor, dedication and courage. USS Houston (SSN-713) joined the fleet as the 132nd nuclear powered submarine and the 20th of the Los Angeles class. Commissioned in 1982, the Houston has made nine Western Pacific Deployments earning two Navy Unit Commendations and a Meritorious Unit Commendation.

The current warship Houston has served for more than 30 years. The name USS Houston has a proud place in the history of the U.S. Navy. From 1917 to 1921, the first Houston (AK 1) transported vital supplies and equipment across the Atlantic to support the war effort. The second Houston (CA 30) served our nation in World War II, from 1930 to 1942, and is the most famous of the Houston legacy. The heavy cruiser was a favorite of President Franklin D. Roosevelt's and was nicknamed "the President's Yacht" because he traveled on the ship so often. In February 1942 during the Battle of Sunda Strait, the USS Houston was sunk after a heroic battle against a Japanese force. The 368 crewmembers who survived the battle were captured by the Japanese soon after and placed in forced labor camps. In March 1942, 1000 sailors were sworn into duty in downtown Houston. These Houston volunteers replenished the ranks of those feared to be lost after the Battle of Sunda Straight, and in October 1942 a light cruiser was renamed Houston (CL 81). The third USS Houston served in the Pacific in WWII until she was struck by several Japanese torpedoes.
 
 
Jungman Neighborhood Library Grand Re-Opening

  
There will be a ribbon cutting and grand re-opening for the newly renovated Jungman Library, 5830 Westheimer Rd, Houston, TX 77057, on Thursday, October 13, 2016, at 10:00 A.M.
 
The J. Frank Jungman Neighborhood Library, originally constructed in 1975, has been closed for two years undergoing a $6,788,000 major renovation. This project consisted of a complete renovation of the existing 18,530 square foot library. Only the foundation, concrete wall panels and roof structure were reused. The project includes new window wall and storefronts, new roof system, new mechanical, electrical and plumping systems, enhanced electrical power to service a large increase in computer services, new finishes, a new monument sign, and the re-configuration of internal spaces. The new facility will accommodate a separate space for adult reading, a quiet room for adults, a children's reading room with space for toddlers and a gaming area. Additionally, there will be a separate area for teens and a meeting space for use by the public. The parking lot, landscaping, irrigation and site elements were repaired or replaced as required.
Glass Recycling
  
While the city of Houston curbside recycling program no longer accepts glass, the Solid Waste Department has established a number of locations throughout the city that will accept glass for recycling. This includes all Neighborhood Depository/Recycling Centers and all Neighborhood Recycling Drop-Off Centers, plus eight new Community Glass Recycling Drop-off Centers.

Through a new partnership with Strategic Materials Inc., North America's largest glass recycler, the city of Houston is able to offer residents a more convenient way to recycle glass. Strategic Materials is working with industry partners and local communities to cover the cost of glass recycling drop off boxes at a total of ten locations throughout Houston with the goal of continuing to expand the program. The first eight locations are now open.  They are available to everyone, regardless of whether you have city of Houston solid waste service or are under a sponsorship agreement.

District G Honors BARC Volunteer Alex Howe

  
Council Member Greg Travis honored Edward Alexander "Alex" Howe with an official proclamation declaring August 30, 2016 "Alex Howe Day" in Houston, Texas.
 
Alex Howe, 28, has volunteered in many capacities at BARC. He has assisted BARC veterinarians with spay and neuter surgeries, become a certified adoption counselor, and worked on the mobile adoption vehicle and satellite adoption events around Harris County. What is so inspiring about Alex's volunteer participation is that he continued to serve even after suffering serious injuries from a devastating fall in February 2015.
 
Alex is a 2006 graduate of Episcopal High School, a 2010 graduate of Hampden-Sydney College, and since 2014 has been an honors student at the University of Houston taking science prerequisites for veterinary school. He is currently making his applications to attend veterinary school so he may devote his life's work to the care of animals.
 
Join Team Mangold for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society Light the Night Walk
 
Former general manager of River Oaks Property Owners, Inc. (ROPO) Gary C. Mangold passed away on May 2, 2016. He battled four cancers throughout the last 10 years of his life and never let these setbacks get him down. He fought with humor, grace, and dignity. Many called on Gary for advice when they or loved ones were fighting their own cancer battles. His strength and courage will not be forgotten by family and friends. Gary held God, family, the ROPO community, and the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo close to his heart (Gary was a 35-year volunteer with Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo Calf Scramble Committee.
 
ROPO is very excited to announce that it has secured a tent at the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society Light the Night Walk on Saturday, October 8, 2016, at 5:30 P.M. at the University of Houston. Registration and the start of the walk will be at Lynn Eusan Park on the UH campus. ROPO is sponsoring "Team Mangold" in memory of Mr. Mangold, ROPO's general manager for almost 34 years, who passed away in May of this year after a courageous battle with cancer. ROPO views this celebration of Gary as the retirement party he never had. They are asking anyone interested to join ROPO and the Mangold family in participating in this event. They would love to have you walk holding a red lantern in Gary's memory. If walking isn't your thing, you are also invited to come by the Team Mangold tent to share your stories of Gary. If you are interested in participating either in the walk, making a contribution in Gary's memory, or both, please follow the link below:
 
 
If you are uncomfortable with online donations, please feel free to mail a contribution to Leukemia and Lymphoma Society Light the Night, 5433 Westheimer, Suite 300, Houston, TX 77056 and note on your memo line "Team Mangold."   ROPO General Manager Ben Turner, the staff, and the family of Gary Mangold invite you to participate in this very special evening.
 

Long-Range Financial Management Plan


City Council approved a $565,000 engagement with PFM Group Consulting, LLC for financial management consulting services at its September 7, 2016 meeting. PFM will develop a long-range financial plan aimed at correcting the city's financial course. The company will forecast revenues, expenditures and long-term obligations and will recommend actions over a 10-year timeframe.

Rating agencies evaluating the city's financial strength and creditworthiness have emphasized the city's need for a plan to address its challenges. This plan will direct the city to achieve a structurally balanced budget (where revenues cover expenditures and pensions are fully funded). PFM consultants will reach out to members of City Council and other key stakeholders for input to include in the plan and recommendations. A platform to track the city's progress over the plan's implementation period will also be put in place. PFM has developed similar plans for other cities including Providence, Baltimore, Memphis, Pittsburgh and Youngstown.

Houston Fire Department Staffing Analysis

  
At the Wednesday, August 31, 2016, meeting of the Public Safety Committee, council members were presented with a list of 48 recommendations for the Houston Fire Department (HFD). The city engaged FACETS Consulting last year to perform a response time and staffing analysis. Kevin Roche, founder and principal of FACETS, presented the results of the $297,000 study, highlighting areas needing improvement. FACETS reviewed several deployment functions including: staffing level and shift adequacy; response times; dispatch; effectiveness of command function on multi-unit incidents; apparatus workloads; fire station and apparatus locations; use of overtime; use of Emergency Medical Service (EMS) transport units; EMS and paramedic credentialing process; telemetry process and clinical outcomes.
 
The FACETS report recommends keeping HFD's current all-hazards deployment model. All-hazards deployment means HFD will dispatch the closest unit (fire truck or ambulance) to evaluate the emergency. Over 86 percent of incidents to which HFD responds are EMS calls, not fire. The report also recommended HFD remain with its four-shift model and that ambulance service not be privatized. Other key recommendations include: establishing a fleet replacement fund and decentralizing fleet personnel; dedicating two procurement professionals solely to HFD needs; improving recruiting to reflect a more diverse force; adding ambulances and medic units; constructing three new fire stations, one in southwest Houston, one in north central Houston and one along the Sam Houston Parkway corridor; changing the medical credentialing process and utilization of paramedics; changing dispatch procedures; maintaining staffing at a minimum of 3,634 and providing resources (vehicles, technology) for fire inspectors.
 
Most of the 48 recommendations require additional funds which will prove difficult in the city's current financial state. The FACETS report does suggest cost savings may be found in dispatch, overtime management, and increased use of technology and purchasing. Since the release of the report, Mayor Turner has indicated the need for further review saying, "This report was commissioned before I got here, and I wanted to wait for its completion. There is some useful information regarding efficiencies and the need for additional sources of revenue, but the report contains no cost savings and refers to national standards that no fire department in the nation is meeting. I want another look with someone under my control."
Memorial City TIRZ Budget Approved by Council

In a unanimous vote on August 31, 2016, City Council passed the Fiscal Year 2017 budget for the Tax Increment Reinvestment Zone (TIRZ) 17. The Fiscal Year 2017 budget is $27 million and allocates $24.3 million for project costs, including $6 million for existing debt service and $16.7 million for capital projects. The five-year Fiscal Year 2017-2021 TIRZ capital improvement plan includes $36 million to be spent on two detention projects aimed at mitigating flooding in surrounding residential areas. This budget garnered broad-based community support from residents eager to alleviate repeated structural flooding in the area.
