City of Humble enforces initiative to prevent residents with violations from renewing vehicle registration

May 11, 2019

The Humble City Council voted to renew its agreement with the Texas Department of Transportation to prevent residents with unpaid traffic violations from renewing their vehicle registration.

Implemented by TxDOT in 2013, Scofflaw Services allows local law enforcement to place “flags” on vehicle registration records.

Another agreement the council gave the green light on was the $450,000 contract between the City of Humble and VCS Architects, LLC to provide architectural services and construction administration for the Parks Department.

Currently, the Parks Department is located on the 1400 block of South Houston Avenue.

The department will move close to the Humble Civic Center.

Humble City Manager Jason Stuebe said the city has budgeted the new location for the department for years and are now going to implement it.

The council also authorized Stuebe to order a survey of the Old Humble Cemetery to record an affidavit of ownership and possession of the cemetery on behalf of the Harris County District Clerk’s Office.

Stuebe mentioned the city has been maintaining the Old Humble Cemetery since 1968 without proper ownership.
