Today, Houston City Council voted to approve my proposed $5.1 billion FY 2022 operating budget,

The budget prioritizes city services, includes funding for police and fire cadet classes, a commitment to improving neighborhoods, addresses homelessness and encampments, and increases the response to illegal dumping.

It is a balanced budget, and we are still meeting the priorities of this city. We are increasing the number of police officers, addressing police reforms, and we are providing core services.

The budget also includes an 18 percent pay raise over three years for Houston firefighters.

Like most states and local governments across the nation, the City of Houston faced a record revenue loss due to the COVID-19 pandemic. In FY 2020, FY 2021, and a portion of FY 2022 alone, the city estimated cumulative revenue losses of $178 million.
Sales tax is one of our hardest-hit sources with an expected $113 million cumulative loss for those fiscal years.

Additionally, we are projecting $65 million in revenue losses from other sources such as Charges for Services, Parking Revenues, Mixed Beverage Tax, and others.

Due to COVID-19 and the city's existing property tax revenue cap, the loss of revenue created a $201 million budget shortfall in the General Fund – the largest deficit in recent city history.

Thankfully, the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA), signed into law by President Joe Biden on March 11, 2021, will provide the City with much-needed relief.

Hurricane Season Prep

They diagnose #Texas with a 75% chance of being impacted by a tropical storm this year (winds of 39-73 mph) compared to a typical season’s 58% chance. They also calculate a 49% of a hurricane hitting Texas (winds 74+ mph) compared to an average chance of 35%, and a 21% chance of a major hurricane (winds 111+ mph) impacting the state, compared to a 14% chance in a normal hurricane season.

This Memorial Day morning, Mayor Sylvester Turner joined Houston Police Department Chief Finner and representatives from the offices of Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee and Senator Ted Cruz in honoring those who have died in service.

To most Americans, Memorial Day may mark the unofficial beginning of summer, but before we pack up and travel, we must stop and remember the heroes who are buried in this hallowed ground.

The veterans who are buried here have done their part. It is up to us to do ours.

Every day we work with our community to serve those who serve us.

The city of Houston recognizes and appreciates the fallen for their significant and lasting efforts.

On Wednesday, Houston City Council voted to double the fines for illegal dumping.

Illegal dumping is a city-wide problem that has been a challenge for years. Putting this ordinance change in place to raise the level of fines is a move in the right direction in addressing this chronic issue.

Section 54.001 of the Local Government Code allows municipalities to enforce a rule, ordinance or police regulation that governs the
dumping of refuse by a fine or penalty of up to $4,000.00

Illegal dumping is wrong, unacceptable and it’s costly to the department and the city of Houston. It trashes our neighborhoods, harms property values, decreases the quality of life in our communities, creates a health hazard, and contaminates our waterways.

We realize those who consistently trash our city by illegally dumping do so to avoid paying landfill disposal fees. As an alternative, we strongly encourage our residents to utilize the six Neighborhood Depository sites where we have increased the operating hours to 9:00 AM to 7:00 PM Monday through Saturday.

Additionally, we encourage our residents to report wrongdoing by calling 311 - if you see something, say something.

WATCH TODAY AT 9:00 AM-Week 58 Questions for Covid-19 Update May 27, 2021
Program started March 19, 2020
Compiled by Rotary Club of Houston Past President Kathy Fenninger
To submit questions please email [email protected]
With Director Stephen Williams, Dr. David Persse (City of Houston) and Dr. Maria Rivera (Harris County)

Vaccines
DSHS shows Harris County has 53.32% with at least one vaccine and 41.7% fully vaccinated. This is certainly higher than the national average, though not as good as many other states. Is that calculated as a % of the entire population or of those eligible to be vaccinated?
When the mask mandate was lifted in Texas, many thought it would cause a huge surge. To what do you attribute what some call a nonevent?
Any idea how the vaccine distribution is doing in the 12–15-year age group and whether their side effects mirror other age brackets?
Is real time data proving that the vaccines have better efficacy than during the trials?
Dr. Fauci said fully vaccinated people may not need a booster shot. Others say we will need booster shots every 6-12 months, perhaps as soon as September. You have mentioned we are determining this “live” as we watch how long antibodies last. What is the latest information? Is there one source that we should trust?
A rare heart inflammation has been seen in vaccinated teens and young adults within 4 days of the 2nd dose. It appears more common in males. There were 18 cases just announced in Connecticut. Is this something to watch or too rare?
When getting vaccinated should you stop autoimmune medications?
Can vaccinations get rid of long-haul issues?
Several publications report that “People on immunosuppressants may have a slower, weaker response to Covid vaccines, and in some cases, no response at all.” Might they need an additional dose to get their antibodies up? Should they get tested?

Transmission/Other
I have recently heard of a number of people vomiting – so on went my mask again. Is some type of severe virus going around?
If fully vaccinated you can remove your mask, but what about if you are undergoing dialysis, having chemo treatments, have diabetes, or other autoimmune diseases? I’m trying to encourage a friend to keep her mask on.
Very disappointed that the World Health Organization is not doing more to unite countries of the world. Who is taking a leadership role in vaccine distribution in the U.S.? It appears no one including the CDC is in charge.
Do break through cases ever result in severe symptoms or mostly none at all?

Treatments/Testing
There is now a commercially available T cell test. Is this of any value?

In the news
Women with PCOS (Polycystic Ovary Syndrome) may have a higher chance of getting Covid and PCOS could hide some of the symptoms of Covid. (CNN) True?
40% of race data is missing from CDC data base. Does that come from State Health Departments and is this accurate in Texas?
A large % of unvaccinated minority adults have a concern about getting time off to recuperate from the vaccine. Is there any emergency protection they can rely on to protect their jobs?
A study looked at the link between Covid Vaccine and Sudden Hearing Loss. Any results? (reported in Forbes and Jama)
There was a news alert about a Digital Day of Action, searching for vaccine sites via vaccines.gov and text zip codes to GETVAX (438829). There were also free rides to vaccine locations. Do we have a more comprehensive method in Houston? Did we have this day of action here locally or is it coming up?

I know this isn’t your area of responsibility, but inquiring minds are curious. Olympics in Japan – the State Department just warned about traveling there. What’s your guess – should they, and will they hold the Games? Las Vegas is awaiting your decision.

Flood mitigation is one of the most important issues in the Houston & Harris County area. The omission of funds allocated here from the CDBG-MIT programs is profoundly disappointing. We have reached out to the Texas General Land Office in a bipartisan effort to remedy this issue. This action is supported by my office, the County Judge, and each member of City Council and the County Commissioners.

I don't give a beep for Mr. Turner as mayor, but I sure am sorry Mr. Keith Wade is gone. Turner would be wise to emulate Mr. Wade in the good work he did. Don't ever again hurt people who want to sell rubber human-like figurines!! Grow up Sylvester! Stop hurting Houston! You're a bad mayor, Turner. Don't run again for mayor.
In the landscape of disaster mitigation, preparedness, response and recovery, Census data can be immensely valuable.
