The City of Mission issued a Disaster Declaration on April 29th due to the storm’s impact that caused widespread damage – prompting swift action from the Mission Mayor and Council. 

The declaration will be extended this Friday, May 5th, during a city council special meeting at the Mission City Hall at 5 p.m.

“We are doing everything in our power to protect and assist our residents after this severe weather event,” said Mayor Norie Gonzalez Garza. “This declaration is a step for Mission to inform state leaders of the disaster that the community has experienced. Everything we do is to help the community and ensure we can recover from this storm as soon as possible.”

At this time, residents are encouraged to fill out the Individual State of Texas Assessment Tool (iSTAT) Damage Survey if they have experienced any property damage. This is a fast way to help your local officials understand the size and scope of the damage within the community. https://damage.tdem.texas.gov/?fbclid=IwAR2KkFlt9HRvv5wbTp1yXH3vWFgGTgPMNcS1cwPbkNpyQC3wDYK02mDxlxQ

In addition, to help Mission residents recover from the storm, the City has waived fees for damaged fences, electrical permits, and re-roofs. Please keep in mind that all electrical permits must be obtained by a licensed electrician as required by the code. Residents have until June 15th to come by the Mission City Hall and apply for a permit free of charge. For more information, please call our Permits Department at (956) 580-8691 or (956) 580-8687. This is a great way to help residents get back on their feet and address the damage caused by the storm.
