From Officer Stuart Sanderson:
I just got done talking to night shift and right now it looks like about 20 break ins that occurred last night throughout the neighborhood. As people wake up and get going today we may see a few more come trickling in. Right now, night shift command is busy formulating an action plan to catch these guys. While they are working on that, can you help me get the word out for anyone who has a camera system to check their camera footage? Even if their car didn’t get broken into they may have captured valuable footage. As we get more info on time frames and any suspect description I will get those out to you to help narrow the amount of camera footage that will need to be reviewed. Additionally to help out those that have had their cars broken into, like your neighbor that had their registration stolen, it is a good idea to monitor your credit. A lot of the paperwork sitting in people’s cars has personal information in it. It doesn’t happen frequently but their info could be used to commit fraud by the people who broke into their cars. Thank you for helping me get this info out hopefully we can help catch these guys and keep anyone from being victimized any further. Feel free to give my contact info out to anyone who may have questions or concerns.

Fort Bend Levee Improvement District No. 10 and Fort Bend County have experience heavy rainfall over the past 24 hours. Everything is draining as designed, but we are expecting additional rainfall in the next couple of days. The pumps for the pump station are operational. Please remove all trash cans from the street and check her out for drains to make sure everything is clear. If you see significant street flooding, do not drive through it. Residents should monitor for Fort Bend County Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Management at https://FBCOEM.org and the City of Sugar Land Office of Emergency Management at https://www.sugarlandtx.gov/105/Emergency-Management for up to date weather and flooding notices.

Pardon our mess.
Please be aware of the construction project taking place at the RiverPark Recreation Center. FBC Levee Improvement District 10 (“LID 10”) has begun the “Slope Failure Project” and will be creating a new amenity space on the main lake once completed. In addition to repairing the problem, the project includes a 50’ flag pole, walking trails, benches, picnic tables and an overlook pier for the lake. It’s another example of what good relationships between agencies can accomplish when working together.
As a result of the preparation space needed for the project, the parking area has been reduced to half it’s normal size for public parking. Additional parking is available in the streets. The project is scheduled to be completed by April 15th.
Thank you for your patience as we work to improve the quality of life for all RiverPark residents.
Cold weather is on its way to Sugar Land!
While we don’t expect any concerns, it’s a good idea to begin thinking about pets, pipes, and plants as we approach the cold-weather season.
For tips to make sure your water lines are ready for the cold weather, go to www.sugarlandtx.gov/ExtremeCold.
The Brazos River has crested at 46.5 and water levels are dropping at the Richmond gauge. Over the next 12-24 hours we should see significant river elevations drop throughout the entire county. As of this morning, all internal levels have been pumped down and are low enough to be below automatic float levels at our pump station. There is still rain projected overnight and into the morning, but the implications to our levee operations will be minimal. Rain totals we are seeing are just under an inch, but we will be prepared for more should the projections change.
