MUD 152 invests in early childhood outdoor learning space at Timbers Elementary

On Wednesday, January 13, 2021, board members of MUD 152 were proud to present a check in the amount of $7,500 to Timbers Elementary in support of their new early childhood outdoor learning space called “Timbers Town”. Timbers Town, which will be open to the community after school until dark, will have a farmers market, music & art center, fire & police station, fire truck & police car, and a Timbers school bus once completed!

Principal Micah Bachemin shared the need and vision of an outdoor learning space for Timbers’ youngest scholars with the board in October 2020. Timbers Town will repurpose space in the playground area that currently has no equipment for the children to use. The total project cost involves Timbers Elementary fundraising efforts, contributions from the Timbers PTO, Humble ISD, and MUD 152.

A few of the four-year-old scholars at Timbers made these comments when they saw the new playground equipment that will be purchased:

“I can’t wait, it’s going to be so much fun! I’m going to tell everybody and I’m going to drive the bus!” – Charlotte

“I think it’s so cool! I give it a thumbs up!” – Zoey

“Woah! Is that for us? I like the music part because I love to dance!” – Jorge

“Fun, fun, so fun!” – Judah

The project is the second investment MUD 152 has made in partnership with Timbers Elementary in recent years. In 2019, MUD 152 worked with Timbers and Humble ISD to build a sidewalk in front of the school that makes walking near the school safer for kids and the community. In addition, MUD 152 worked with the Atascocita High School Student Council to place more than 1,000 storm water inlet markings in the neighborhood and hosted them in a mock MUD meeting to learn more about the function of a MUD board.

Tropical Storms- Marco and Laura

Beginning on August 20th, your Inframark management team began preparations and tracking of what was known then as tropical disturbance number 13. TD 13 intensified and became tropical storm Marco. As of this Sunday morning Marco is forecast to begin a counterclockwise movement and make landfall as a hurricane on the Louisiana coast. At that point, the storm will continue on a west-northwest track taking it through Louisiana and eventually coming in to East Texas just north of Beaumont. At this point it will be a tropical depression.
Additionally, we are watching tropical storm Laura. This system is currently bringing inclement weather to the Dominican Republic, Haiti and the southeastern Bahamas. Experts predict the storm will continue on a north northwest track, strengthening as it moves through the Gulf of Mexico.

The storm is still too far out to forecast a point of landfall, but experts generally agree it could be anywhere from Houston all the way to Mississippi. Additionally, there is much discussion on the impact Laura may or may not exert on Marco as these two storms potentially are going to be close.

With the amount of data that we have been presented and the significant discrepancy in its interpretation by the weather experts, INFRAMARK has decided to prepare all of our clients as if both storms are going to make a direct hit on the Houston area.

Here are the steps we have taken:

  • We are in direct contact with Jeff Lindner from Harris County OEM to assist us in understanding the forecast.
  • We have 2 daily briefings to review the data points with our emergency team.
  • All facilities have been placed in a hurricane prep condition ready to withstand the unique weather characteristics that are brought about by hurricanes.
  • We have verified fuel delivery with our multiple fuel vendors.
  • We have placed our Shelter in Place Packs (SIPPS) in strategic locations for our employee’s safety.
  • Our customer service and billing teams are set up to perform their functions remotely via the internet.
  • Our 2-way radio system is active and ready in the event cellular communications are compromised.
  • We will be deploying the mobile command center (MCC) Monday AM.

The MCC is a self-contained mobile vehicle that has 100 gallons of diesel, an 85kW generator, communications tools and food to keep our 24-hour emergency team ready.

As always, we hope that this becomes a non-event and dissipates quickly. If you have any questions about anything related to the storm or your district preparation, please reach out to your designated account manager for more information. If anything changes, we will share it with another special edition of our customer first newsletter.

Atascocita HS Student Council Efforts

On February 26th, 2020, MUD 152 hosted Atascocita HS Student Council along with MUD 152 consultants in a mock meeting. Students were able to participate, ask questions, and understand the function of a MUD board.
MUD 152 thanked Atascocita HS Student Council for their efforts and provided a $5,000 stipend for their efforts in installing over 1,100 storm inlets throughout Atascocita South and Atasca Woods.
