Gov. Abbott acts to delay planned 10 percent hike in windstorm insurance rates

Governor Abbott has heard from members of the community and the legislature on this issue. Communities and families are still recovering from Hurricane Harvey, and the Governor believed that a rate increase at this time would negatively impact residents of the Gulf Coast. The Governor believed it was necessary to delay any decision to approve or disapprove the proposed rate increase, and until the Legislature has had a full opportunity to address the matter.

Aransas County Will Begin Private Property Debris Removal (PPDR) for Homeowners Affected by Hurricane Harvey

The Honorable C. H. Burt Mills, Jr. announced that the County will soon launch its Private Property Debris Removal (PPDR) program. This program, scheduled to go into effect Monday, November 6th, was developed in coordination with Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), which authorizes the County to collect disaster-related debris from residential properties impacted by Hurricane Harvey.

Through the program, County debris removal contractors will be able to enter residential property to remove storm generated debris, provided the County has received a signed Right-of-Entry (ROE) agreement from the homeowner. In order to qualify, homeowners must:

  1. ​Meet with a County PPDR coordinator at one of the locations below to provide proof of homeownership and complete a Right-of-Entry (ROE) form
  2. Sign a hold harmless agreement to assure that the federal government, its respective employees, agents, contractors, and subcontractors are indemnified and held harmless as to any claims arising from debris removal
  3. Provide a copy of valid Texas ID/driver license matching the property address
  4. Remit any insurance proceeds already received for work similar to that to be completed by the County

Residents can apply in person at the PPDR Application Center, located in the Aransas County Public Library 701 E Mimosa Street, Rockport TX 78382.

Applications will be accepted beginning at 10 a.m. on Monday, November 6th. Office hours are 9 am to 6 pm Mon – Fri and 10am – 2pm on Saturdays. Closed Sunday.

Message from The Mayor

Citizens of Fulton, Texas:
As we enter into our third week of recovery from Harvey, I want to give you of some information about our town.
Town Hall is up and running. Our hours are 8 to 5 during the weekdays and half day on Saturday, 8 am to noon. This is the our temporary schedule during early recovery.

We are asking you to place your debris on the side of the road and crews will come and collect it with big trucks (wood, limbs, trees, etc.). Plastic and metal should be placed in a separate pile. Household items must be taken to Aransas County landfill or picked up by your private trash collector. County Judge, Burt Mills, has set up the landfill as a free location at this time. You must enter from Prairie Road. (The old entrance for noncommercial.) Contractors will enter off Airport Road.

We have supplies at Town Hall for our citizens if you need assistance. We have water, toiletries, and different types of soft goods. You are welcome to come and get whatever you need as long as the supplies last.

Natural gas is on and will remain on. But PLEASE, if you smell a leak, inform our local gas company (City of Rockport).

We are rebuilding our community and look forward to Fulton returning to the wonderful town with that great personality that so many enjoy. We have been hurt by the damages that occurred to local hotels and restaurants by ways we never expected. A lack of HOT funds from tourists coming, sales tax from closed businesses, will certainly have an effect. We must understand that recovery and rebuilding will occur over time and we will all have to be patient.

I would like to say thanks to all our Fultonites for being so Fulton strong and Fulton proud. We have joined together and reached out a helping hand and much needed love to each other in this time of need.

As Mayor, I want to extend a special Fulton thanks for all your help and desire to rebuild. I promise, our council is committed and our employees are willing to achieve success by working with our community to re-establish the great Town of Fulton as the place to be on the Coast.

God bless each of you and God bless Fulton

Mayor Jimmy Kendrick
