Graffiti

WASTED TAX DOLLARS

Once again we are reminding residents of the continual problem we have with graffiti appearing throughout Copperfield. In the past four months alone, the District has spent over $13,128.93 for removing and maintaining areas where it appears. Due to excessive and constant removal, some areas now need to be redone with our anti graffiti coating. This coating does not prevent paint from adhering but aids in its removal. The cost of this coating creates another added drain on your tax dollars.

If you see someone, hear of someone committing this crime, please contact the non-emergency number at the Sheriff’s office (713-221-6000).

According to state law regarding vandalism and intentionally painting on property:

  • Class “C” – misdemeanor if the pecuniary loss is less than $100.
  • Class “B” – $100 or more but less than $750.
  • Class “A” – $750. or more but less that $2,500.

Anything above this amount is considered a felony. The graffiti removed from the trails last week fell in the Class “A” category. The police are notified and/or a police report is filed with each incident.

Please remind everyone, if caught, there will be ramifications and fines. Your tax dollars could be put to better use than rectifying the willful acts of a few individuals. Thank you

“See something – Say something.”

Scoop The Poop

Stop disease-causing bacteria in its tracks, by keeping our waterways clean. Do your part by cleaning up after your dogs! It is appalling to see the trails littered with dog poop. Soon it will start getting darker earlier. Your fellow trail users would appreciate a clean trail when they go walking or bike riding especially at dusk and early morning. Bags are provided to facilitate removal if you forgot to bring one with you.

At home:

  • Pick up every poop
  • Bag it
  • Put it in the trash
  • Repeat weekly

Away from home:

  • Always bring bags
  • Pick up every poop
  • Bag it
  • Put it in the trash

Veterinarians, garbage collectors and health professionals all agree that the trash is the safest way to dispose of your dog’s poop. Dog droppings left on grass wash into our storm drains, increasing the level of bacteria and making waterways unsafe for swimming and fishing.

Tree Limbs and Debris in Bayou

Please do not throw tree limbs and other debris on the tops and sides of the bayou. Your tax payer dollars and that of your neighbors has to pay for their removal. This is money that can be used to maintain the trails and bayous. The limbs need to be cut in 3 or 4 foot lengths, bundled and placed at the curb on your regular trash days. Other yard debris needs to be bagged and placed at the curb also.

These simple things can make it more pleasurable for all the residents to enjoy our trails and the better use of your tax dollars.

Bayou Blockage

Building an obstacle to block the flow of water in the bayous is illegal. Recently this dam/walkway was found near one of the bridges. It cost taxpayer dollars to have it dismantled. Please refrain from creating any impediment with any material anywhere that disrupts the continual course of the water.

If you observe anyone attempting to build such obstacle or one already in place, please contact authorities or H2O Consulting.

No Motorized Vehicles Beyond This Point

It is against the law to ride any motorized vehicles on the bayous throughout Copperfield. Not only is it a nuisance to residents backing up to the bayous but it can damage the trails and/or the channels that keep our area from flooding. As a reminder, there is a fine imposed if caught.

If you see someone using a motorized vehicle on the trail, please call the Sheriff’s non emergency number (713) 221-6000 and report it.
