Background and Discussion:
The Texas Water Development has established regional committees to address the planning required to ensure the state has adequate (drinking) water in the future; Harris County is located in Region H. John Blount, P.E., has served as a representative for counties within Region H for many years. Loyd Smith, P.E., has served as John's alternate to this committee at the time of John's retirement. The Committee will determine who John's replacement is amongst all the counties within its boundaries. This letter is to endorse Loyd as the candidate from Harris County. http://regionhwater.org/about/planninggroup.html

Court may choose to nominate a different individual to serve on the Committee, or Court may choose to pull Harris County out of participating in the committee.
