One year ago, Hurricane Harvey dropped an unprecedented amount of rain on our city. It was a joy to fellowship with residents from one of the hardest hit neighborhoods in the district. We will continue working to manage flooding in our city.

Congratulations Principal Bailey and the entire Lawson Middle School faculty, staff, students and parents on the ribbon cutting of your new state-of-the-art campus. We wish you all a wonderful school year in your new space.

Safety Zone

Did you know 120 vehicles a day and over 800,000 cars a year are vandalized? To lessen your chances of becoming a victim, don’t give criminals an opportunity to steal.

The District K office and Brays Oaks Management District have introduced our Theft Reduction Report Cards to remind residents not to leave items visible in their vehicles. At a recent PIP meeting, Sgt. Hicks talked about auto theft prevention and how to make your vehicle a less desirable target. Let’s stop giving criminals opportunities. Will you receive a passing grade?
