COVID-19 Update

While we all are dealing with the COVID-19 virus pandemic, the board of directors for your LID 15 wanted to provide a brief update on the current status of the pump stations and other operational matters.

All of the pump stations connected to LID 15 are operating at prime efficiency. We have full gravity flow, which means any rain can flow into and through the district without impediment. As such, we are not currently pumping and do not anticipate needing to have the stations pull water out of the area.

Currently, the Brazos River gauge is under 15 feet. Flood stage is at 45 feet. There is rain in the forecast over the next few weeks, but we do not anticipate that the water levels will rise to concerning levels in the near term.

Our monthly meetings continue with some alterations. We have asked non-essential consultants and LID 15 vendors not to attend but provide written updates to the board. These remain open meetings to residents, but due to the governmental restrictions on gatherings of over ten people, we may need to rotate residents into the sessions if need be.

Governor Abbott, on Monday, suspended some open meetings laws to allow for teleconferencing for governmental meetings. This will assist in the official recommendations/requirements to limit face-to-face meetings to help slow the spread of COVID-19. We, alongside our legal counsel, are currently developing procedures for the temporary changes.

All of our LID 15 team members are working hard to ensure that the water flow inside the district is not a worry.

If anything changes in the district, we will notify you on the LID 15 website, Facebook page, and if need be through emails and texts.

Tax Rate Decline

As reported in a post on September 26, the tax rate for District residents in 2019 decreased by 9 cents over the previous year. The current rate is 53 cents per $100 of assessed value. This reduced rate follows a six-year trend of decline in the rates from .80 cents per $100 assessed value in 2014.

As stewards of taxpayer funds, LID 15 Directors continually seek ways to manage the business of the district in the most cost-effective way.

District residents are encouraged to stay tuned to for news about the district and follow the “Levee Improvement District 15” Facebook page for updates.
