Have EVERYONE call 3-1-1

posted Sep 15, 2017, 6:37 PM by Memorial Super Neighborhood

The City of Houston administration is now indicating they are picking up storm debris based on 311 call volume, NOT on worst first, or anything that is needs based, or recognizes the sanitary sewer overflows that has inundated the west side’s debris.
 
Our office has a simple ask for every single constituent: call 311; give them your address and tell them your storm debris needs to be picked up.  Please share this request in every way you think appropriate (website, email blasts, bulletin board, even put it up on Next Door; if you see your neighbor, ask them to call 311); mark your outreach EMERGENCY OR URGENT.  If they want call volume, it is now incumbent on every District G constituent to give them call volume.  Remember, you can call 3-1-1, email 311@houstontx.gov, use the start phone app, or go online at www.houston311.org.
