The City of Baytown will be conducting a door-to-door survey in the neighborhoods of North Alexander and Historic West Baytown scheduled to begin on Thursday, June 10.
Canvassers may knock on doors and ask questions regarding a citizen’s household and income. Participation in this survey is important and will be used to meet the threshold to allow the City to apply for funding for major flood mitigation projects in these areas.
“Collecting this information will greatly assist with the City’s competitiveness when submitting grant applications to the Texas General Land Office. The drainage projects the City has identified for our grant applications will increase the water systems capacity, reduce water surface elevations and prevent frequent flooding in prone areas,” said Brian Moran, Assistant to the City Manager.
Responses will be kept confidential. Residents will be able to identify the canvassers by the official badges they will be wearing. Canvassers will be dressed in black pants with white shirts and will be wearing badges issued by the City.
