City of Sugar Land bond election
As you may know, the City of Sugar Land is considering a $90 million bond election scheduled for November 5. Years of public input have shaped what projects to include in the bond, which will address drainage, public safety facilities, streets, and an animal shelter.
Although there is approximately $45 million in debt capacity over the fiscal year 2021-2023 timeframe, that is not sufficient to support the total $90 million worth of projects identified in the proposed bond.
More than half of the proposed projects address drainage, with 82 percent of the total dedicated to drainage and public safety project. The bond election will provide residents the opportunity to determine which projects to fund, which will represent $10/month for the average Sugar Land homeowner.
You can learn more about the projects and get answers to frequently asked questions at www.sugarlandtx.gov/sugarlandGOBond.

Removing Mold From Your Home's Exterior: While there’s always the option of paying for someone to pressure-wash your home to remove mold, there is a fairly effective home remedy you can use to get rid of this problem. Mix the following household ingredients in a garden sprayer, which you can get for under $20, or find in your garage.
1/3 cup powdered laundry detergent
2/3 powdered household cleaner
1 quart liquid laundry bleach
1 gallon of water
Double-check to ensure children and pets aren’t in the area, and wear some sort of safety mask. You may also want to cover your plants or other vegetation around the base of your home with drop cloths. These ingredients generally aren’t harsh to clean with, but can be dangerous if you are breathing, or ingesting the ingredients. Once you have the solution mixed, you will begin applying it to your siding. One gallon should cover a 10’ X 20’ area or a little further, depending on how liberal you are with it. Once you apply a good coat to your vinyl siding, let it stand for five to ten minutes. After this lapse in time, use your garden hose to rinse the siding off. If you don’t have a garden hose, thoroughly cleanse your garden sprayer and fill it with water to rinse the siding. Depending on the severity of mold, you may need to apply a second or third coat and repeat the steps already covered. Make mold old news and spruce up the exterior of your home!
