#MCTX BREAKING NEWS: City Overnights Mail-In Ballots for Dec. 12 Runoff For Harris County Voters

Missouri City was notified on Friday (Dec. 4) that registered voters who live in Harris County and who previously elected to cast mail-in ballots, did not receive them for the Dec. 12 Runoff Election.

Once notified, City staff contacted Fort Bend County because the County administers City elections, including voting precincts that are located in Harris County. Staff asked whether, per the contract, the mail-in ballots had been sent out. Fort Bend County verified that, in fact, they had not mailed the Harris County mail-in ballots.

Afterward, Fort Bend County staff then contacted Harris County and obtained the mail-in ballot list. It was determined that 378 mail-in ballots would need to be sent to registered voters.

Today (Saturday, Dec. 5), Fort Bend County staff prepared 378 mail-in ballots and the Missouri City City Secretary’s Office paid to have the mail-in ballots overnighted at a cost of $11,256.01.

Residents should expect to receive their ballots by Monday, Dec. 7. Ballots must be postmarked by Dec. 12 to be accepted by Fort Bend County for the Dec. 12 Runoff Election.

#MCTXSTRONG Continue the Fight Against COVID-19!

Responding to a spike in coronavirus cases across the region, Mayor Yolanda Ford and City Health Authority Dr. Joe Anzaldua, MD, recorded a public service announcement reminding Missouri City that the COVID-19 pandemic remains a threat to the health and safety of all residents.

“We realize this pandemic is traumatic for many residents,” said Mayor Ford, “and our goal is to educate the public on safety guidelines and to limit the loss of life and overburdening of our healthcare system."

The numbers of confirmed cases, hospitalizations and deaths have all risen. As of Nov. 19, the number of confirmed cases in the United States reached 11,743,780, with 252,861 deaths. In Texas, there have been 1,105,009 cases and 20,565 deaths. Missouri City residents who have contracted the disease now number 2,138, with 57 deaths.

Additionally, Mayor Ford has extended the facial covering order until Feb. 1, 2021. It requires everyone within Missouri City to wear a mask or facial covering when inside a commercial establishment or other building/space open to the public, or when in an outdoor public space wherever it is not feasible to maintain six feet of social distancing.

Harris and Fort Bend County officials urge all residents to get tested for COVID-19. Those wanting a test can go to the following area locations:

• CVS Drugstore, 2781 Dulles Ave. & 1610 Cartwright Rd.
• Excel Urgent Care, 6840 Hwy. 6

Missouri City Prepares for Runoff Contests in Tumultuous Election Cycle

In a 2020 General Election cycle marked by residents voicing serious concerns about Fort Bend County mail-in ballots that were missing City candidates, inoperable machines during early voting and the retabulation of more than 10,000 ballots from the Smart Financial Centre, the final count has confirmed the necessity of a runoff for two incumbent Councilmembers.

Mayor Yolanda Ford received 49.92 percent of the citywide vote while candidate Robin Elackatt received 29.80 percent. Chris Preston, Mayor Pro Tem and At-Large Position #2 Councilmember, won 42.61 percent of the vote to candidate Lynn Clouser’s 46.07 percent.

Fort Bend County Judge KP George’s office is investigating the voting irregularities.

As no candidate in either contest garnered 50 percent of the vote, a 2020 Runoff Election will be held on Saturday, Dec. 12. The slim .08 margin in the Mayoral race and the difference in the At-Large Position #2 contest resulted in the runoffs and will cost the City several thousand dollars in election administration fees.

Council Greenlights Payroll Protection for Small Businesses!

At the virtual regular meeting last night, City Council approved a payroll protection grant program to provide assistance to small business owners under Phase 3 of the City’s CARES Act program. Payroll protection grants are available to reimburse for-profit businesses that have been substantially impacted by COVID-19 and have between one (1) and 50 employees.

“The Council approved this funding because Missouri City understands that its small businesses have borne the brunt of the economic damage from this pandemic,” said Odis Jones, City Manager/CEO. “From the grants for leases and mortgages to the monies for payroll reimbursement, we are doing everything we can to keep these businesses going.”

Grants will be up to $20,000 each. The City has earmarked $1.7 million for the program, which comes from the additional $2 million in CARES Act funding received from Fort Bend County last month. The payroll protection program covers W-2 employees only, not 1099 workers. The monies would be paid out for the month of November and December. The County previously had its own payroll protection program, but it was discontinued.

The program opened today (Tuesday, Nov. 17, 2020) for small businesses; to apply click here: https://bit.ly/2UDoDFn.

Eligibility-Grant Amounts are based on 2019 taxes:
* Annual Sales up to $100,000 – Grant Award up to $5,000
* Annual Sales from $100,001 to $2,000,000 – Grant Award up to $15,000
* Annual Sales from $2,000,001 to $5,000,000 – Grant Award up to $20,000

General information

Missouri City is located approximately 20 miles southwest of downtown Houston, in northeast Fort Bend County. A small portion of the City extends into the southwestern section of Harris County, where its boundaries adjoin the City of Houston. The northern portion of Missouri City is traversed by U.S. Highway 90A, which intersects U.S. Highway 59 (Southwest Freeway), within three miles of the City. State Highway 6, one of the principal “outer loops” partially encircling the City of Houston, serves the southern portion of Missouri City. Beltway 8, an 83-mile freeway providing a second freeway loop around the City of Houston, was opened in early 1997 and extends through the northeast portion of Missouri City. The beltway ties U.S. Highway 90A to U.S. Highway 59, Interstate 10, and State Highway 288. On the east side of Missouri City, the Fort Bend Tollway, which connects Beltway 8 to State Highway 6, opened to traffic in August 2004. The City of Missouri City was founded in 1890 by R.M. Cash and L.E. Luckle, two Houston real estate investors. They advertised in the St. Louis, Missouri newspaper and in surrounding towns, referring to the property as the “Land of sunshine and eternal summer.” In 1893, W.P. McElroy bought 80 acres in the vicinity and began to promote the area. To boost sales in Missouri, it was named Missouri City. The first business was a blacksmith shop, and then the Buffalo Bayou, Brazos and Colorado Railroads were built north of the town, in 1853, and a depot was constructed in 1902. The town was the railroad shipping point for the Blue Ridge oil field and salt mine. Another rail line, known as the Sugar Land Railroad, served the sugar cane industry.

Hi. Has the Police Sub-Station in the Wells Fargo Bank Building moved to another location? I was shocked to see that there were no police cars in the parking lot today when I stopped by the bank. I know they recently moved there, and liked having them in the neighborhood. I hope they are not gone.
I've noticed that the Hunters Glen Park here at 2234 and Independence has been cut several times over the past 3-4 weeks even though we are NOT in the growing season. Though it's appreciated, I also noticed that the park was practically neglected over the summer during the peak of the growing season, and the grass would get so long that when it was evetually cut, it looked like a hay field. The clippings weren't cleand up, and it was very sad to see the way our area was left. I hope that this maintenance schedule is going to be kept up from now on and that this is not just a selling point now that we are in an election year.
Polls are closed and Mayoral candidate Robin Elackatt is outworking the competition. Tomorrow is another day to vote. Give Robin a shot and he’ll prove it.
When are you going to open the bathrooms at MacNaughton Park??
I tried voting at the Sienna Library location this morning and it was down as of around 1 hour ago.
What on earth is going on!
