Please join us in taking the following survey and assisting the County and Cities in our planning efforts.

Harris County Hazard Mitigation Plan Public Survey

A range of natural and human-caused disasters can affect any community. Harris County, its incorporated cities and special purpose districts, collectively known as the “Greater Harris County Region," work diligently to mitigate threats and prepare for disasters. To maintain a high level of preparedness, we need your help to identify and plan for future disasters.  Data collected through this survey will help the Greater Harris County Regional Local Hazard Mitigation Plan Steering Committee to:

  • Assess our residents’ level of awareness regarding disasters;
  • Determine areas vulnerable to various types of disasters;
  • Coordinate activities to reduce the risk of injury or property damage in the future; and,
  • Update the multi-jurisdiction Local Hazard Mitigation Plan.

Commission Meeting - February 27, 2019

The Fire Commission on Wednesday, February 27, 2019 and an item was included on the agenda to discuss Fire and EMS Services in Bunker Hill.   Mark Kobelan, Mayor of Piney Point Village along with Brian Muecke, Mayor of Hedwig Village presented a settlement agreement.   The settlement agreement presented included the following:

  • Bunker Hill contracts with the Village Fire Department for Fire and EMS for four additional years after December 31, 2019 at Bunker Hill’s current rate of 19%.
  • Bunker Hill will have the right to opt into full membership in the Village Fire Department at the end of the four year period (January 1, 2024) providing an eighteen-month notice.
  • Bunker Hill can add EMS Services for Bunker Hill during this time at Bunker Hill’s sole expense

Mayor Kobelan indicated that all Six Village Mayors are supportive of the agreement.  The Fire Commission also appeared supportive of the agreement.  The next step is to draft a letter of intent to be presented to the six (6) cities.

Bunker Hill is pleased with this progress and offers appreciation for the efforts of Mayor Kobelan and the other Cities. 

 

A Note from Mayor Williams - December 20, 2018

Dear Residents:

Thank you to all residents that attended the Village Fire Commission Meeting last night, Wednesday, December 19th at Hedwig Village City Hall.  Bunker Hill made a presentation to the Village Fire Commission on two items:

  • Resolution regarding Bunker Hill’s Membership in the Village Fire Department
  • A Proposal to develop a Second Station in the Southwest Section of the Service Area to better serve this Area.

Bunker Hill’s Settlement Presentation included the following two key points:  

  • Bunker Hill will stay in the Village Fire Department. At the meeting, Bunker Hill paid all pending invoices which totaled $21,626.25 and committed to the 2019 operating budget and the capital budget to renovate the Fire Station.
  • When additional staff is needed at the Village Fire Department to manage future growth in our service area, a Second Station will be added in the southwest area to house the additional staff. Bunker Hill offered to acquire the property, design, build and finance Station 2 and the VFD would reimburse Bunker Hill the amortizing costs of the station which are estimated to be $150,000 to $200,000 a year. 

In summary, Bunker Hill Village desires to remain a full member of the Village Fire Department and wants to work in good faith with the Fire Commission and Fire Chief to plan for a second station the future.

The Commission took no action on the settlement presentation.  The commission did appoint a sub-committee to address service to Bunker Hill past the year 2019.  At this point in time, we don’t know what they will propose.  However, we are still confident that we are a member of the VFD.   

The VFD Commission did state that they could not commit to a second station. We are disappointed that the VFD will not commit to a future station in the southwest part of the service area.

We are committed to continue to work with the Fire Chief and the VFD Commission in providing the best EMS and Fire service for our residents.

Thank you,

Mayor Jay Williams

Dear Residents:

The City is providing the following information to help you prepare for hurricanes and major storms.   The City encourages everyone to continue to be vigilant and be aware of weather conditions through our local media.  Below is a quick short list to help with  your preparedness efforts:

1.  Sign up for our own Community Alert System - "V-LINC"  with the Memorial Villages Police Department.  Click here to access the V-LINC registration.  This is also a great opportunity to note any special situations that you may have for example:   Additional Occupants, Elderly Residents, Oxygen, Special Needs, etc.

2.  Add your account, address and contact information to received CenterPoint Energy's power alerts (click here).  You will need information found on your electricity bill.  Note:  Regardless of who you have as your energy provider, CenterPoint Engery is the responsible party for all power outages.  Their number is 713-207-2222.   CenterPoint has shared that they now have "smart meters" so they know when you loose power.   They also have an online Customer Outage Tracker which displays current outage locations and estimated times to restore power - visit their website at http://CenterPointEnergy.com/OutageTracker for more information.   You can sign up for this information with CenterPoint even if you have a different energy provider.  They can provide text messages to you and it is very helpful.   Scroll down to see more information provided by CenterPoint.

3.  Replenish your disaster supply kit with important emergency supplies including a first aid kit, a NOAA Weather Radio or a battery-operated radio, flashlight, medication, non-perishable food items, and bottled water.  Review the information from FEMA to ensure you are prepared and develop an emergency plan for communicating with family and friends. 

For more information about Hurricane Preparedness, please visit the National Hurricane Center website: http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/prepare/.

Coastal residents can find evacuation routes by visiting the TxDOT website: http://www.txdot.gov/inside-txdot/division/traffic/safety/weather/hurricane.html.
