TIRZ Reappointments . . .
I would like to thank and congratulate the following individuals for their willing dedication and service to the Board of Directors of Tax Reinvestment Zone Twenty: Welcome W. Wilson, Jr., Kevin M. Chavez, Kenneth C. Li, Stephen T. Le, Saul Valentin, and Candice Alexander. They will re-join their colleague Dale Davidson who is slated to be reappointed on a different service rotation schedule.
The TIRZ Board helped develop the engineering design plans for the Bellaire re-construction project and has financed the work. That project is scheduled for completion this fall. At my request, the Board has also agreed to fund $3 Million dollars in renovations to Crain, Lansdale and Sharpstown Parks during the next three years.
Mayor Annise Parker, along with City Council, confirmed the appointments on July 23, 2014. I am grateful that these individuals choose to volunteer their time and talent to making the Sharpstown community, and District J, a better place for all of us.
-Mike Laster, Council Member – District J
