April 2020 Westbury Crier Newsletter - DIGITAL ONLY

posted Apr 8, 2020, 8:07 PM by Westbury Civic Club President

The April 2020 Westbury Crier is being issued as a DIGITAL ONLY newsletter, due to the Covid-19 epidemic. Here is a link to the April 2020 Westbury Crier Newsletter. Please help us by sharing to your friends and family.

https://bit.ly/April2020WestburyCrier 

The Westbury Civic Club office is closed to visitors and the WCC office manager is working from home, in accordance with the Stay Home, Work Safe order. Voicemails and emails are being checked regularly, and mail is checked twice per week. The work of the Westbury Civic Club is continuing– statement of accounts, resale certificates, review of house plans, etc.

Heavy Trash Day in Westbury is TOMORROW (Thursday, April 9) and JUNK WASTE will be collected.

This issue contains pages of information and resources about the Covid-19 epidemic and the Stay Home order. If you have not yet submitted your information to the 2020 Census, there is information about how to do so by phone or website. There is also information about work the Harris County Flood Control District is doing in Westbury.  For fun stuff, there is a whole page of photos “As Seen in Westbury” on page 9.  We are accepting photos for the May newsletter; you can email photos to us at the WCC office email.

There is a feature called “We LOVE Our Constables” on page 7. The constable program is important as a “force multiplier” and is successful at reducing crime. Your financial support for the WCC and the Constables is needed now, more than ever.  We know that some will not be able to pay the amount they would like to pay for the Westbury Constable program. If you have the ability to send a payment, please help your friends and neighbors who may not be able to pay during these challenging times. We have added a new feature to the WCC website to allow payment by credit card or by your PayPal account, as discussed on page 7.

Stay Safe.  Take Care.

Call to Action - Save our Constable patrol program

posted Mar 6, 2020, 12:58 PM by Westbury Civic Club President

Westbury call to action!!!! For over 30 years Pct 5 has helped keep Westbury safe as HPD numbers decreased and crime increased. Please email everyone listed below and sign up to speak on this item: 20. c. 2.

20. Commissioners court c. Precinct 2; 2. Request for discussion and possible action on a study of contracts held by Constables under the Harris County Contract Patrol Program to evaluate how the program operates in each Constable precinct, the efficacy of the program, its full impact on the county budget, its impact on operations of county departments, and inequities that may be caused by the program, with the study and final recommendation completed and submitted to Commissioners Court on May 19,

Carpooling will be available to go to commissioners court.

URGENT Message from Constable Ted Heap:

This proposal from Harris County Commissioner Adrian Garcia deals with doing away with deputy constables patrolling your neighborhoods.

This is a public safety issue. There are more than 1000 constable deputies countywide that support our understaffed Harris County Sheriff’s Office and Houston Police Department.

This proposal by Commissioner Garcia, if passed, will significantly impact the safety of our families and community by removing those deputies from your streets.

I am committed 100% to protecting your families, neighborhoods and businesses. I will fight any attempt to remove our deputies from your streets.

Please read this open letter to our Precinct 5 residents for more information:

Dear Friends:

My office was made aware for the first time this morning that County Commissioner Adrian Garcia intends to propose an item on the March 10 Commissioners Court agenda that could significantly impact law enforcement in your communities.

Because this study proposal (https://constablepct5.com/index.php/public-safety-message-2/) has not been discussed publicly prior to its inclusion on next week’s agenda, I want to ensure that you and your neighbors have an opportunity to see it and discuss it before any action is taken on Commissioners Court.


I encourage you to make your voice heard on this issue. You can do that by writing or calling:

• County Judge Lina Hidalgo, who also represents you on Commissioners Court. Judge Hidalgo’s office number is 713-274-7000, and her email address is Judge.hidalgo@cjo.hctx.net • *Commissioner Adrian Garcia, the Commissioner spearheading this campaign, at 713-274-2222, and you can email him at Adrian.Garcia@pct2.hctx.net or through his website: https://hcp2.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=25&Itemid=224/#contact • Commissioner R. Jack Cagle at 832-927-4444, and you may email him at commissionercagle@hcp4.net • Commissioner Steve Radack at 713-755-6306, and you may email him at Pct3@pct3.hctx.net • Commissioner Rodney Ellis at 713-274-1000, and you may email him at comm_ellis@cp1.hctx.net You may also wish to attend the March 10 meeting of Commissioners Court, which begins at 10 a.m. in the Commissioners Courtroom on the ninth floor of the Harris County Administration Building at 1001 Preston in downtown Houston. If you wish to speak to the court on this issue or to watch the proceedings live online, please go to: https://www.hcp4.net/appearances/. If you plan to speak you MUST sign up online at https://appearancerequest.harriscountytx.gov/
