SHOREACRES SHORTS - January 2005

Happy New Year!

Now that 2005 has arrived, we can all look forward to a fresh new year of accomplishment in the City of Shoreacres.  One of the best ways for citizens to know about these positive steps (and to suggest others) is attendance at the bi-monthly City Council meetings that take place on the second and fourth Mondays of each month at 7:00 pm.  Please come and be informed!

 Intersection News (Shoreacres Blvd, @ HWY 146)

 The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) is coming to the January 24 council meeting to talk about the options for the Shoreacres Blvd./HWY 146 intersection design and mitigation.  You really should attend this meeting if you are interested in what is being considered for the intersection and what it means to the community.

 Call for Parks Board Applications

 Three positions are open.  The city hopes to have applications in by the end of the first week in February.  Anyone interested can pick up an application at City Hall.

Coyotes

 Recently, coyotes have apparently increased their migration into the City of Shoreacres, and have been causing problems.  At least one domestic pet has been killed by coyotes, and garbage that is not properly sealed when left out overnight is often a coyote attraction.  Texas Parks & Wildlife (TP&W) does not relocate coyotes, so prevention is the course of action they recommend.  Keep pets in fenced yards if not indoors.  Remove all food sources from yards, including any fruits and nuts that have fallen from trees.  Try to take garbage out the morning of pick up, and keep it tightly covered or sealed.  Keep your pets current with their shots.

 An article provided by TP&W will be at City Hall or may be requested by Email to Tracy Revak, ThreeTRs@aol.com.

 Limbs Still Needed for Heron Park

 Currently small limbs are needed to line the trails.  The limbs should be no larger than 6 inches in diameter and 5 feet in length.  Please no debris or tree trunks.  If you have any please call Mary Beth Maher, 281-471-4745 or Tracy Revak, 281-471-3425

 Reminders:

  City Council Meetings are scheduled January 24 and February 14 & 28 at 7:00 P.M. at City Hall.  Agendas are posted at City Hall at least 3 days prior.  Citizens are encouraged to attend! Visit the City of Shoreacres website at www.cityofshoreacres.us.

 Help fight local crime by being observant.  If you see anything suspicious going on in the city call the non-emergency Police Dispatch at 281-326-5900.  Together we can make a difference.
