HydraTec Services – Fire Hydrant Inspections to Start

This is a notice to the citizens of Hitchcock, that HydraTec Services will be inspecting the fire hydrants throughout the city to insure proper operation. The hydrant will be flushed, and a twenty-four-point inspection done. Work is scheduled to start Tuesday, January 21, 2020 and be completed in about 30 days. The information obtained will be used for Fire insurance ratings and to ensure the hydrants work properly in case of any emergency. There may be a slight discoloration in the water due to the flushing of the water system. Your help and patience while this is going on is greatly appreciated.

Grant Approval

City of Hitchcock Local Infrastructure Application to the GLO has been APPROVED

The grant application submitted by the City of Hitchcock to the Texas General Land Office’s Hurricane Harvey Local Infrastructure Program has been approved.

The GLO allocated $413 million to the Local Infrastructure Program and $275 million to the Local Buyout and Acquisition Program from HUD community development block grant for disaster recovery (CDBG-DR). The GLO allocated the funds to regional Council of Governments’ (COGs) based on a HUD approved needs assessment. The locally-led COGs then conducted methods of distribution (MODs) for determining infrastructure and buyout and acquisition amounts for cities and counties within each jurisdiction.

The City of Hitchcock grant application for $1,463,149 is intended to facilitate proper functioning of critical wastewater-system components to reduce the impact of sewage contamination and backflow in emergency situations.

The GLO will continue to work with The City of Hitchcock to execute the contract. 

We congratulate The City of Hitchcock for its resilience in the days since Hurricane Harvey and for the effort to identify projects that will better protect our fellow Texans.
