Welcome to FloydEmery.com

In May 2011 the Voters of District D elected me to represent them and in May 2013 and again in May 2015, I was reelected to this position without opposition. I ran on a platform of Ensuring Public Safety, Attracting New Business and  expanding our Business Base, Address our Infrastructure and Water Needs, Enhancing Alliances with our HOAs and Building a Partnership with our Residents. Following are activities and projects addressing these goals.

Ensuring public safety was advanced by providing a public safety budget funding personnel and assets needed to keep our personnel and residents safe, the creation of a five-unit motorcycle patrol and plans for Fire Station 6. In 2013 a pay structure review for our public safety personnel was conducted where we brought their pay to a level competitive with other surrounding cities. We are currently conducting a 2015 salary review to assure we are competitive with those cities in our area. Recognition as the sixth safest City in Texas is a result of the performance and professionalism of our Police/Fire Groups and numerous Staff and Council policies and public safety initiatives.

Attracting new business was moved forward with the planned construction of two new business parks located in the Beltway 8 and SH90 area,  finalizing the Houston Community College  relocation of its Sienna Campus to the Texas Parkway/Cartwright Road Corridor will act as a catalyst for new business. An economic development incentive program and a Small Business initiative program designed to attract small business will advance this goal. We continue to enhance our recognition as a business friendly city through policy and procedural changes that advance this image.

Our infrastructure and water needs are being addressed through the passage of a $40 million bond referendum that funds drainage projects and public facilities. Completing multiple mobility projects such as the revitalization of Fifth Street, extensions of Vicksburg Boulevard and Lexington Boulevard and repairing sidewalks in neighborhoods citywide address our infrastructure needs. Completion of the $50 million Water Treatment Plant at Steep Bank addresses State and Federal mandates for water source and usage placing Missouri City in a strong position to meet these mandates.

There is new energy and commitment in our HOA's as they work to maintain their development as attractive, safe locations conducive to attracting/retaining homeowners. The presence of City Staff, Police and Council at HOA meetings and the City sponsored District specific HOA meetings reflect the City's commitment to Enhance Alliances with our HOAs. Reporting and tracking of police activity (Raids on Line) and city ordinance violations (See/Click/Fix) made available to residents and HOAs compliment this partnership. The experience at the City sponsored National Night Out event where there were 65 official locations reflect a sense of pride by Missouri City residents in their neighborhoods and fellowship with neighbors.

In Building a Partnership with Residents,  the launching of a revamped Municipal Volunteer Program (MVP) where citizens contribute their time and talents to improve operations in City departments, the groundbreaking of a community garden in Buffalo Run Park, planting additional groves of trees along the Edible Arbor Trail, hosting traditional annual events and in seeking resident input and feedback at public input workshops all place a priority on building this partnership. Further focusing on providing residents with a quality lifestyle, Missouri City Council lowered the property tax rate to $0.56 cents per $100 of valuation. Transparency was advanced as the City Staff provided processes that allow citizens to report and track code enforcement violations online through SeeClickFix.com  and for Financial reporting with access to the City's  Annual budget, CAFR and check register.  Developing and building this partnership is a key element in the City receiving recognition as the 16th best City in America in which to live.

With the experience gained and positive results attained I am positioned to continue working with my fellow Council members and City Staff as we move Missouri City forward.  We have made great strides in meeting our critical needs and I look forward in continuing my service to the residents of District D and Missouri City.

Thank You,
Floyd Emery
