Bill King unveils plan to reduce Houston flooding


One of the candidates for Houston Mayor is putting out a plan to reduce flooding in the city.

That candidate is Bill King, who tells KTRH his big target is the drainage fee, and where that money goes.

"I think one of the most egregious faults of the current administration is that they continue to gut the drainage fee. We are paying about $110 million a year in drainage fees. They are taking half of that and spending it on something else," King explained.

King says Mayor Sylvester Turner said he would not divert drainage fee money for other things when he ran in 2015, and that he has not fulfilled that promise.

King added that if we spent 100% of that money on drainage, a lot of people who got flooded during Harvey would not have had to deal with that.
