Greetings!
Mosquito sample tests positive for West Nile virus
The Montgomery County Precinct 3 Mosquito Abatement team detected the first West Nile virus positive mosquito of the season in a sample tested in-house Friday, May 10.

Precinct 3 immediately sprayed the area where the positive sample was obtained. The surrounding area will be sprayed again Thursday. Treatment includes spraying all streets and county rights of way within the affected area twice in one week.

“Our office is working diligently to minimize the risk of contracting a mosquito-borne illness,” Precinct 3 Commissioner James Noack said.
Residents can check the treatment activity map ( http://www.precinct3.org/mosquito-abatement/ ) to learn when spraying will occur in their neighborhoods.

Residents are advised to avoid outdoor activity during the scheduled treatment hours. Residents should take personal protective measures, such as applying insect repellent; wearing long, light, loose clothing; and eliminating standing water.

“The one thing that all mosquitoes require to breed is a source of water. Be sure to turn over or remove anything from your yard that can hold water,” Mosquito Abatement Director Justin Fausek said. “If you have areas where you can’t get rid of the water, such as a birdbath or meter box, you can treat it with a larvicide containing BTI instead.”

For residents who would like assistance identifying mosquito-breeding sites in their drainage ditches or in the county right of way near their home, call 281-364-4203 to set up an appointment. Our teams can provide customized advice on how to deal with these issues.

We urge residents to take precautions while outdoors and think  WET.
 
Remember to  Think WET!

  • Wear repellent
  • Eliminate standing water
  • Treat water you can’t eliminate

2018 Hurricane Season Preparedness Guide
Hurricane season begins June 1 and lasts until Nov. 30.

It is vital for your family/household to have a plan. Your family may not be together when a disaster strikes. You must know how to contact one another and reconnect if separated. Establish a family meeting place that’s familiar and easy to find.

Step 1: Put together a plan by discussing these questions:

How will I receive emergency alerts and warnings?
  • Montgomery County residents can receive emergency alerts and notifications by signing up for ALERT MCTX.
  • Residents also are strongly encouraged to download the READYMCTX app for Android or Iphone.
What is my family/household communication plan?
  • Download the Family Plan fillable PDF here.
  • Make sure everyone in your family/household carries a copy of the completed form in his or her backpack, purse or wallet.

Step 2: Consider specific needs in your household.
  • As you prepare, tailor your plans and supplies to your specific daily living needs and responsibilities. Discuss your needs and responsibilities and how people in the network can assist each other with communication, care of children, business, pets and specific needs such as the operation of durable medical equipment.

  • Keep in mind these factors when developing your plan:
  • Different ages of members within your household
  • Responsibilities for assisting others
  • Locations frequented
  • Dietary needs
  • Medical needs, including prescriptions and equipment
  • Disabilities or access and functional needs, including devices and equipment
  • Languages spoken
  • Cultural and religious considerations
  • Pets or service animals
  • Households with school-age children

Step 3: Stock up on emergency supplies.
  • You might be without power and potable water for an undetermined amount of time during and after the storm. It is important to at least have these items:

  • Seven-day supply of water (1 gallon per person per day)
  • Seven-day supply of nonperishable food (for each family member)
  • Manual can opener
  • Flashlight
  • Extra batteries
  • Personal ID
  • Camp stove with fuel or other nonelectric cooking device
  • Cell phones & portable chargers
  • Map of your area and list of emergency shelters
  • First-aid kit with manual
  • Cash
  • Download the Montgomery County full emergency supply kit checklist here.

Home Preparation Tips:
  • Keep trees and shrubbery trimmed of diseased and dead wood,
  • Cover all large windows and patio doors with securely fastened storm shutters made from 5/8 inch thick plywood or greater
  • Secure doors using a security deadbolt lock with 1 inch minimum bolt throw length.
  • Fill available gasoline containers and keep them full until the end of hurricane season.
  • Bring outdoor furniture, toys, garbage cans, potted plants, garden tools, etc. inside.

Road Projects
  • The new section of Abbey Boulevard is now complete. This will enable further progress with the approaches and other areas on and around the Union Pacific Railroad bridge.


  • The contractor currently has crews working on the approaches to the UPRR bridge.
  • Drainage crews currently are installing pipe on the westbound side of Rayford Road from Geneva to the Drainage District 6 bridge.
  • Dirt and asphalt work on the new eastbound lane is ongoing from Rayford Bend to Brookchase Drive.

  • Curb and gutter crews also are working along the eastbound side as well as westbound side from Geneva Drive toward the UPRR bridge.
Traffic Shift

The reinforced concrete barriers on the south side of Rayford Road between Geneva Drive and Wild Rose Drive have been shifted to the north side as crews install drainage followed by dirt prepping and then asphalt. The concrete barriers are in place to ensure the safety of both the workers and the public.
Alternating Lane Closures as Needed:

  • Eastbound and westbound temporary lane closures will occur Monday through Saturday, as needed, from Richards Road to the Grand Parkway for the duration of the project.

Thank you for your patience while construction crews continue to work as quickly and safely as possible. We recognize that construction can cause inconveniences, and we appreciate your understanding during this process. Please follow all road signs, pay attention to barriers and watch for crew members in the right of way.
