The City of Shoreacres City Council passed a resolution last night requesting that the Harris County Appraisal District re-appraise all properties damaged by flooding from Hurricane Harvey.
WHEREAS, the State of Texas in Section 23.02 of the Tax Code authorizes the reappraisal of property damaged in a disaster area; and,
WHEREAS, the Governor of the State of Texas has declared a State of Disaster for Harris County; and,
WHEREAS, the City of Shoreacres lies within the territorial boundaries of Harris County;
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF SHOREACRES, TEXAS:
THAT the City Council of the City of Shoreacres, hereby requests that the Harris County Appraisal District re-appraise approximately 70 properties within the boundaries of the City of Shoreacres, as listed by the City Manager of the City of Shoreacres.
I introduced this resolution because I think it is the right thing to do. I hope that other taxing entities in Harris County join the City of Shoreacres in doing all that they can do for those that had their lives disrupted by Hurricane Harvey.
