Conroe, September 26 – The Montgomery County Hospital District voted unanimously this afternoon at its regular monthly Board of Directors meeting to permit reappraisals of flood-damaged homes in Montgomery County in order to ease the tax burden on those whom Tropical Storm Harvey or the San Jacinto River Authority or both damaged.
Board of Directors member Bob Bagley, who represents Commissioner’s Precinct 4 on the Board, said, “I’m proud of the MCHD board for voting for the reappraisal and I expect us to continue to work for and with those devastated by the flood. It would be nice if we could eliminate property taxes altogether, so we wouldn’t be servants of the government.”
MCHD has now joined Montgomery County and the Woodlands Township as the third taxing entity to approve reappraisals of flood-damaged homes.
Incredibly, the Board of Trustees of the Conroe Independent School District actually voted to remove a proposal to reappraise the flood-damaged homes within its jurisdiction from its September 19, 2017, meeting agenda. Two CISD Trustees, Melanie Pryor Bush and Ray Sanders, voted to keep the item on the meeting agenda and move forward with reappraisals. The five CISD Trustees who took the heartless position that they wouldn’t even consider reappraisals for flood victims were Datren Williams, Skeeter Hubert, Scott Kidd, John Husbands, and Scott Moore. Meanwhile, Trustee John Husbands and CISD Superintendent Don Stockton are vociferously working to keep high-tax-advocate Bruce Tough as a member of the Board of Directors of the Montgomery Central Appraisal District Board of Directors.
