Harvey Storm Debris Pick-up Suspended
Please be informed that Fort Bend County is no longer picking up storm debris. They have stopped a few weeks ago and any debris remaining will be left up to each homeowner to remove.
In addition, what is being placed out for pick-up is construction trash from the rebuilding and remodeling of homes. This will also be the responsibility of each homeowner to have removed as it will not be picked up by Best Trash during the routine scheduled pick-up.
Please see the following for helpful links regarding guidelines / frequently asked questions for Best Trash:
Association Wood Fences Affect by Harvey
Please be informed that the fencing damaged by Harvey that the Grand Lakes CAI maintains per the Supplemental Guidelines for each Phase and Section is scheduled to begin replacement on Monday, December 4, 2017 and weather pending the project should be complete in 4-5 days.
If there are questions about what party is responsible for fence maintenance, please refer to the Supplemental Guidelines for the Phase and Section that the property / lot is part of and this document was most likely received in the closing documents when purchasing the home. If you don’t have this document one can be viewed by going to Fort Bend County Clerk Web Access. Search under Party Name “Grand Lakes” and then select “RESTRICTIONS” under Document Type and click Search. In order to understand which document to select, please see your property site survey to reference the property legal description (Phase, Section, Block, and Lot). Another easy option is to go to Fort Bend Central Appraisal District and do a property search to retrieve the legal description under general information.
