Generator Rebate Pilot Program Supports Proactive Preparedness
Sugar Land City Council recently approved an ordinance establishing a generator rebate pilot program -- a move intended to promote preparedness, resiliency and residential reinvestment. Qualifying homeowners must apply for the rebate by Nov. 30, which will be issued after completion and approval of all required city building inspections. The rebate covers permit and plan check fees associated with the installation of permanent standby generators. Click here for more details.

City of Sugar Land Update May 28, 2021
Here are some ways you can help fight the bite
Following some pretty wet weeks, the city has increased its seasonal mosquito spraying to twice a week on Tuesdays and Fridays and is placing larvicide tablets in standing water to reduce mosquito reproduction.
The city sprays for mosquitoes to reduce the potential spread of mosquito-borne diseases. When spraying is required, the service will be performed on Tuesday and Friday nights, during the months of May through October. Spraying will begin each evening at approximately 9 p.m and continue until the entire city has been treated. Larvicide applications are also routinely performed citywide in order to help eliminate mosquito breeding sites.
In addition to the city's efforts, here are some ways you can help fight the bite!
-DUSK & DAWN are the times mosquitoes are most active, stay inside if possible
-DRAIN standing water where mosquitoes breed such as clogged gutters or birdbaths
-DEET defend yourself using insect repellent containing DEET or picaridin
-DRESS in long sleeves and pants, when outdoors
