Houston Drainage Fee – Class Action Investigation

Chimicles & Tikellis is investigating a class action lawsuit on behalf of residents of Houston, Texas who paid drainage fees on their water bills.  The drainage fee was instituted to help fund ReBuild Houston, a multibillion dollar streets and drainage improvement program that was approved in 2010.  The drainage fee is included on Houston residents’ monthly water bills.  The Texas Supreme Court recently issued a ruling that held the ballot measure that implemented the drainage fee was misleading because it failed to disclose the amount of the fee to the public.  It has been alleged that residents felt forced to pay the fee due to the threat of water shutoff.
