Emergency Operations Update – Heavy Rain Event

Fort Bend County Levee Improvement District No. 15 (LID 15) is forecasted to receive 0.5 to 2 inches of rain during the overnight hours Friday, December 15. The latest forecast and information from the National Weather Service is included below.  Fortunately, the Brazos River is at low levels that do not impact drainage inside the LID 15 levee.  The LID 15 pump stations and portable pumps are exercised monthly, and operators are available to run the pumps, if needed.  Based on the current forecast, the District does not anticipate that the pumps will be operated.

During any heavy rain event there may be street ponding or flooding if the storm drains are overwhelmed and back up.  As rainfall decreases, the storm sewers will catch up, and any water in the streets will recede.  Never drive into high water.

2023 Tax Update: Tax Statements Delayed

Fort Bend County has announced there will be a delay in the mailing of property tax statements due to the recent constitutional amendment election in Texas.

The Fort Bend County Tax Office is working to have statements mailed by mid-December. LID 15 taxpayers receive a consolidated tax statement from the Fort Bend County Tax Assessor/Collector, which also includes County and Fort Bend ISD tax bills.

On September 18, 2023, the LID 15 Board of Directors unanimously voted to reduce the 2023 tax rate to $0.30 (per $100 of assessed value). This is a $0.04, or 12%, reduction compared to the 2022 tax rate, and it will lower the tax bill on the average home by $41.
