Harris County MUD 148 gave 150 families in the District toys for Christmas this year. Thanks to all sponsors. Thanks to all of the volunteers. And thank you to the non-profit organization, Every One Counts, that put this on for the district. “Community First “ is our motto.
On December 12th, 2020, Harris County Municipal Utility District No. 148 partnered with the Houston Food Bank to distribute food to over 500 families. Participation in this event included the Board of Directors, District Consultants, and community volunteers. For their hard work the District and Board of Directors received a certificate of appreciation from State Rep. Harold Dutton.
The District would like to take this opportunity to let residents know about laws and regulations pertaining to operation of Golf Carts and ATVs in the community. Use of these motorized vehicles is only allowed on a roadway, when it it a licensed vehicle, and must be operated by a licensed driver.
Texas Water Code, Section 49.217- Operation of a motor vehicle on a drainage ditch or detention pond or on land adjacent to a drainage ditch or detention pond is punishable by fine of up to $500.
Texas Water Code, Section 49.228- A person who wilfully destroys or damages district property is guilty of a Class B Misdemeanor punishable by fine of up to $2,000 or by confinement in jail for up to 180 days, or both.
The District has concerns that Golf Cart and ATV usage along the drainage ditches and detention ponds are causing damage that will need to be repaired, through the use of taxpayer dollars. Traffic along these areas can lead to serious ruts and erosion, as well as other safety concerns for residents.
