Flagpole Auction

March 31, 2022

The City of Shoreacres will be conducting an auction of a used flagpole that was in use at the entrance to the City on Shore Acres Blvd. until last year when it was replaced. The flagpole can be placed in service and contains all pieces necessary for this task. 

The flagpole is not a typical flagpole, it is a “Gaff Rigged Flagpole” like you would likely see at a yacht club or maritime center. It is available to view in its current state by appointment during normal business hours by making an appointment at (281) 471-2244.

The City will accept sealed offers at Shoreacres City Hall in person from March 31, 2022 until April 14, 2022 during normal business hours and on April 15, from 8:30 am until 10:00 am. The sealed offers will be opened at 10:00 am on Friday, April 15, 2022 at 10:00 am in the council chambers located at 601 Shore Acres Blvd, Shoreacres, TX 77571. You are welcome to attend the event as it will be open to the public. 

The following procedures will be used as guidelines:

  • All offers must be in writing and contain your name, address, phone number, email and the amount of your offer in dollars and cents
  • The offer must be placed in a sealed envelope and delivered to City Hall by the end date and time
  • City staff will accept the envelope and mark it with the date and time of arrival, any exact bids received will be honored by the first one received
  • The auction item will be auctioned “as is,” with no warranty or refund
  • Payment must be received by close of business on Monday, April 18, 2022. If not received by then, it will go to the next highest bidder
  • The winner of the item assumes all responsibility for the pickup and delivery of the item. It must be removed from the current location no later then close of business on Tuesday, April 19, 2022. 
  • Payment must be by check, money order, cashier’s check, cash or credit card (plus 5% for credit card fee)

For any questions, please contact City Manager Troy Harrison at (281) 471-2244 during normal business hours.

National Night Out

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.

Heavy trash week of Sept. 27 – Oct. 1

Good morning. 

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.

As a reminder your trash/building materials must be separate from your vegetation. If you mix your piles with both vegetation and trash/building materials it will not be picked up and you will be responsible for its disposal. Any items with freon in them (refrigerators, freezers, air-conditioners, etc.) must have the freon removed and property tagged.

Please let your neighbors know about this change in dates.

Mayor Jennings

Storm Debris Pickup

Precinct 2 Commissioner Adrian Garcia is assisting the city with storm debris pickup.

Pickups will occur tomorrow and Friday starting at 6 am.

They will ONLY pick up vegetation. If you have mixed trash or building materials in with your vegetation, they will not pick it up and you will be responsible for disposing of it.

I very much appreciate Commissioner Garcia’s support.
