As you know, we are in a period of extreme heat. The Harris County area continues to set records in not only our daily high temperatures but also in our nightly low temperatures, which have been above 80 degrees on for days on end.
Please see the chart below from the CDC about heat related illnesses. Be sure and check on your elderly neighbors, daily if possible. If you see someone in need, call 911 if an emergency, dispatch (281-842-3185) if it is not an emergency but you think that on-site help is needed, or City Hall for non-emergency needs.
The 4th of July holiday is a time of celebration in our country and we should celebrate it as so. There are many sponsored activities in our area to enjoy, but please take precautions as you celebrate. It is hot so drink plenty of water and stay hydrated as well! Fireworks are prohibited in the City of Shoreacres so please do not use them.
The Houston Yacht Club will have their fireworks show on the evening of July 3, and it can be viewed from the Miramar shoreline. The weather has not provided for much moisture lately so any illegal fireworks observed will be referred to local law enforcement.
Parking on Miramar will be allowed on July 3 and July 4 so our residents and visitors can enjoy the firework shows from the area.
We had a great time at the 2021 National Night Out on Tuesday, October 5th. At last count over 125 Shoreacres residents came out. to enjoy hot dogs, popcorn and great fellowship with their neighbors.
Many thanks to City Manager Troy Harrison, City Secretary Karen Mericle, Municipal Court Clerk Bernie Anderson and the Shoreacres Civic Association for their hard work in organizing and working at the event.
Due to the amount of debris from Hurricane Nicholas the city has moved the fall Clean up/Green up to the week of September 27th through October 1st.
The trucks will start on the east side of the city beginning Monday morning and will work their way to the west side. There will only be one pass through the city so have your debris on the curb by Monday, September 27th at 7:00 am.
