Glad to see League City taking the lead on this because it would have never happened if we were waiting on the county to step up and take the lead.

We keep spending funds in multiple studies and the passage of County bonds. It is time to get some accountability and reports for the past expenditures such as:

The Galveston County voters approved three propositions on the November 4, 2008 ballot: 1. $75 Million for Road Improvements; and, 2. $15 Million for Drainage Improvements and (3) $45 Million for Facilities Improvements and New Construction.

And again, Tuesday, November 7, 2017: Voters OK $80 million Galveston County bond package for 3 items: $56 million for road projects, $18 million for facility upgrades and $6 million for drainage work and flood improvements.

Were these funds related to improve drainage, clearing bayous, etc. effective? Were funds spent? Just my thoughts.
