A shout out to all our friends and neighbors who took part in the triathlon in Kemah today. Marcus and Reanna Chernecke and Rick and Jill Mowell that I know of.
For all you early voters out there this is for you.

In addition is Proposition 1 that calls for reauthorization of the one-quarter percent sales tax for our city streets.
This is an important issue for the City budget and our residents should be aware of the background prior to being faced with it at the ballot box.
Below is a brief explanation of the language and impact to our City and our residents.
Ballot language and explanation of Proposition 1 which will be found on the current ballot for Clear Lake Shores.
The reauthorization of the local sales and use tax in the City of Clear Lake Shores, Texas at the rate of one-fourth of one percent to continue providing revenue for maintenance and repair of municipal streets. For or Against”
Voting for this proposition will continue to provide about $180,000 per year in sales tax revenue to the City to help maintain our streets.
It is not a property tax and does not increase or decrease the property tax that our home owners pay – which is currently zero.
Voting against this proposition will discontinue this important revenue stream to the city.
It must be re-enacted every three years to retain the revenue that we are now collecting.
If you would like more information please contact the mayor, any council member or city staff official.
