Board News

Fond Farewell to Chad Howard

It is with great sadness and gratitude that we say goodbye to PGMUD President Chad Howard and his family. Chad served on the Board from May 2012 to May 2018. He has sold his home in the District and is building a home in Needville. The Board will miss his service and leadership for the community.

New Director Appointed

The Board has appointed long time Pecan Grove resident Jean Gobar to fill the unexpired term of Chad Howard. Jean recently retired from service with the Fort Bend County Sheriff’s office. While Jean served as Deputy, she was the security coordinator for Pecan Grove’s contract with the Sheriff’s office, so she knows our District well. She has attended many District meetings over the years. Although Chad’s role with the Board will be hard to fill, we look forward to the contributions that Jean will make to the district.

Message from the Board of Directors

The Board of Directors of Pecan Grove Municipal Utility District (the “District”) began negotiating a proposed settlement with Jones & Carter related to flooding in Plantation, Sections 4 and 5 on September 8, 2017. As of November 8, 2017, Jones & Carter has not yet accepted the District’s terms and conditions which the Board feels best protect and compensate the District.

We have received calls from homeowners reporting that you have not yet received letters from Jones & Carter. At the October 24, 2017 meeting, Bob Aylward of Jones & Carter announced Jones & Carter would be providing a letter outlining a compensation/reimbursement program to homeowners damaged by flooding in Plantation, Sections 4 and 5. The Board specifically requested that Jones & Carter address individual losses incurred by homeowners, but has no control over the distribution of these letters. Jones & Carter’s offer to compensate individual homeowners is unrelated to the District’s settlement of claims against Jones & Carter; however, the Board will continue to request that Jones & Carter develop a compensation program for affected homeowners.

Also, the water in Pecan Grove remains safe to drink.
