District Statement

District provided services such as safety patrols by off-duty HPD officers, graffiti abatement, trash pick-up, maintenance of esplanades, among other services outlined in the Districts’ Assessment Plan, that are supplemental to services provided by the City of Houston, had been reduced in Mid-November and ceased completely as of December 11. The District had to cease the services due to unpaid assessments from some of the commercial property owners within the District. Delinquent assessments for 2016 and prior years are being collected for services that were delivered in 2017. The current lawsuit status does not affect the collection of delinquent assessments due for 2016 and prior years for services rendered for calendar year 2017.

    Twitter mocks racists after DNA test shows ancient Britons had dark skin
    Ancient inhabitants of modern-day United Kingdom may have rocked dark skin and blue eyes, a DNA test on a 10,000-year-old skeleton revealed Wednesday. The new findings, along with a 3-D recreation of the oldest-known Briton, who scientists dubbed "Cheddar Man," are being used to by Twitter users to mock white supremacists that have long looked to Europe for notions of racial purity.
