Midland's Residents Are Urged To Conserve!

by The Underwood Team

Midland's Residents Are Urged To Conserve!

 

Conserving electricity today and Tuesday in Midland has been requested by the Electric Reliability Council of Texas. They entreated residents to please cut back on the electricity use this week today and Tuesday from 3p.m. to 7p.m. Honestly, this should be brought to your attention in general to cut back your usage. Be aware of how much electricity you are using and how much you are wasting by leaving lights, fans, and unnecessary appliances plugged in.

This heat across Texas has caused temperatures to be sky high and we really need to be aware of our electrical use to help lower the risk of blackouts. ECOT representatives also stated that "record high temperatures of 103 tied the record for the date set in 2002."

If residents in Midland, or if you are reading this and are not in Midland, please help conserve your electricity as well, it will help reduce the chances of blackouts. Always remember when you cut back on your electric use, you are one more person that is helping make a difference.  

 

Have a blessed day!

PRAY FOR RAIN!

by The Underwood Team

The word PRAYER is a powerful word with a powerful meaning and prayer also changes lives. We need prayer in Midland, TX! We need rain very badly in the area. Not only does Midland, TX or the state of Texas need rain, but lots of areas in the world are needing rain. 

God works in mysterious ways and he also answers prayers. If you are reading this blog, could you please pause for a moment and just simply pray for rain. You would be surprised how fast prayers could change moments and things in everyone's lives. 

 

GOD BLESS!

Midland County Proposed Tax Rate

by The Underwood Team

Midland, Texas

Midland County proposes to lower property tax rates in the fiscal year 2012. Midland county commissioners proposed earlier this week to decrease the property tax rate for the upcoming year. They will vote on this proposed tax rate in September. This would definitely be another benefit to living in the Midland, TX area. Midland's economy is better than it has been in years.

 

If the proposed tax property rate decreases, it will decrease 6.4 percent. The current property tax rate is 0.211805. If the proposed rate passes for 2012 the property tax rate for 2012 will be 0.198207. Also, compared to the 2010 fiscal year, there has already been a $5 million increase.
