Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Office – Monthly Contract Report for July 2022

PGVFD Report – July 2022

Chief Jerod Vontz discussed the budget for next year for the Pecan Grove Volunteer Fire Department (PGVFD). In order to try to re-staff the department there will need to be an increase in the budget and our PGVFD portion will increase to $16.85 per month per residence. Mr. Vontz also reviewed the needs for replacement equipment and training so that we can maintain our current fire rating. Failing to maintain our fire service rating could cost homeowners hundreds more in home insurance.

Parks Report

Fort Bend County is donating live oak trees to Pecan Grove. We have asked for delivery in October or November so the planting will not be during such hot weather and the trees will have a better chance to survive.

The electrical panel at Windmill Park has been replaced.

An online portal on our website for event reservations at the new Pecan Grove MUD Administration/ Community building as well as for the park pavilion is now available and some meetings have been held.

Main Channel High Bank Rehabilitation

Starting June 1, 2022, a contractor engaged by Pecan Grove Municipal District will begin work on the banks of the main channel which drains the portion of the District generally located south of Plantation Drive.

Project includes re-establishing backslope swales and adjusting backslope drains along Main Channel to prevent standing water on the maintenance berms which can cause erosion and failures.  Construction will primarily involve small earth moving equipment but may, at time, involve larger equipment as necessary to complete the project.

Any vegetation that overhangs the channel high bank and impedes the construction activity may be trimmed to facilitate construction.

This project will take approximately three months to complete.

Should you have any questions regarding the project or concerns about construction please contact the District office at (281) 238-5000.
