Aransas County continues the recovery process from Hurricane Harvey, and officials are pleased and excited to announce a meeting is scheduled to finalize funding for a critical FEMA Hazard Mitigation project.

The county has lead an effort since 2017 to secure Hazard Mitigation funding to evaluate and mitigate the effects of excess storm-water and tidal surges in the Little Bay drainage system. The County is partnering with FEMA, TDEM and the Aransas County Navigation District (ACND) in this effort.

County Judge C.H. “Burt” Mills will soon sign a contract with the state to initiate Phase 1 of the comprehensive evaluation of the Little Bay drainage system.

“Members of our county team have been working on this project since 2017,” said Mills. “We would like to thank the members of our team and the ACND for their excellent work, and we are looking forward to a kickoff event with our State and local partners to make this happen.”
