Hurricane Harvey Reappraisal Request:     

Galveston County homeowners who have any type of property damage from Hurricane Harvey can now report that damage to the Galveston Central Appraisal District via email: harveydamage@galvestoncad.org. This particular email address was created to allow residential property owners to report flood, tornado or roof damage electronically and will help homeowners, next year when the property is reappraised January 1, by possibly reducing the value because of existing damage or ongoing repair work.

**Debris Pickup Information**

The City has completed the first round of heavy debris pickup. The second round will begin Monday morning, October 16. Please have all heavy debris at the road or curbside by Monday morning for the second round of pickup. Do not put debris in the street. Pickup will begin at the eastern city limits north of Hwy 6 and proceed west to the western city limits. Pickup will move south of Hwy 6 and proceed east to the eastern city limits. A map of the pickup route can be found at the Santa Fe website under the Emergency Management tab. A map will be posted on the bulletin board at City Hall.

Be sure your debris is as close to the curb or roadway as possible. Do not put debris in the street. Please separate household trash and tree limbs from storm debris. Refrigerants are accepted. Do not park your vehicle on the street if at all possible or park the vehicle away from any debris piles. Do not put debris in plastic bags because the debris hauler must see what is being picked up. There will be more than one pass through the city until we are cleaned up.

Be aware of where your gas meter is located. As debris is put out for heavy trash pickup, make sure it is away from the meter. Before cleaning debris, digging on your property or to locate underground natural gas lines and other underground utility lines, CALL 811, the nationwide Call Before You Dig number

Please spread the word to your neighbors and friends that may have not received the automated call out. Register for city notifications on the homepage under Blackboard Connect.

Residences and businesses located on Highway 6, 646 and 1764 will have debris picked up by the state highway department.

HB 3693 Report

Establishment of Safe Trade Zone at Santa Fe PD
On April 20th, 2017, The Santa Fe PD  officially established an Safe Exchange Zone (E-Commerce and Child Custody exchange location) in the front parking lot located at 3650 N. FM 646 (Justice Center). The parking lot is monitored by cameras, but citizens may call 409-925-2000 if they have an issue, or 911 for an emergency, during the exchange.
“The Safe Exchange Zone although not a brand new concept, is designed for citizens to trade goods for e-commerce in a neutral location, or exchange children between parents/guardians for custody. The neutral location may help prevent those who want to come to the seller’s residence for other nefarious purposes, such as planning a burglary, etc. By meeting at the PD, the seller does not have to give away the privacy that they may desire at their residence” said Chief Jeff Powell.
Santa Fe PD wants residents involved in e-commerce or child custody exchanges to be aware that the location at the PD is available 24 hours a day.
