Tropical Storm Beta Update

  1. Update: September 20
    Sugar Land emergency planners are preparing for the possibility of heavy rain from Tropical Storm Beta through Thursday. We are participating in calls throughout the day with the state operations center and the National Weather Service, as well as working closely with our regional partners, to maintain situational awareness. Forecasters currently predict the storm will make landfall tomorrow night along the middle Texas coast, then slowly move along the coast or slightly inland through our region toward Louisiana. Their confidence in the storm’s track is moderate. The chance of tropical storm conditions for Sugar Land is decreasing.

    We should expect the rain to begin as early as tonight or tomorrow. The best chance of heavy rainfall in Sugar Land will be Monday through Wednesday. Based on the current track (which is subject to change), the National Weather Service expects Sugar Land could receive 5-10 inches of rain over three days with higher totals possible; however, the confidence of weather experts in the rainfall amounts remains low due to questions about how dry air will affect the storm. It’s possible we could receive much more rain and experience flash flooding, so everyone should keep a close watch on the storm and make preparations.

    The Brazos River remains below flood stage, floodgates operated by Levee Improvement Districts are expected to remain open and storage capacity currently exists in ditches and lakes that hold water during heavy rainfall events. LIDs in Sugar Land are prepared to utilize their pumps if necessary.  Flooded streets, damaging winds and power outages are always possible during strong storms. It’s a good idea to closely follow the National Weather Service and the National Hurricane Center -- the authoritative sources of weather information.  Please help us keep storm drains clear, secure loose items around homes, avoid parking on streets, keep gas tanks full and stock up on emergency supplies. Prepare now by visiting www.sugarlandtx.gov/em for planning resources. Other helpful resources follow.

New Online Payment Platform is Live

  1. City Council approved the implementation of a new online payment platform called Paymentus.
    This transition is another step forward in the city’s commitment to managing resources in a responsible and efficient manner – as well as ensuring that residents have a more accessible, easy, and secure way to continue paying their utility and miscellaneous bills online.

    Were you enrolled in auto-pay with a credit card? Here's how to handle your bill if it is due in September.



    For the payment due in September you will have three options to handle your balance due:
    • You may make a one-time payment using your credit card. Please have your account number ready (it is listed on your bill).
    • Pay in-person (appointment is required), send the payment by mail or use one of the drop boxes available throughout the city.
    • Register in the new system and we will automatically process your next payment.
      • When your next bill is issued, that will be due in October, we will carry your balance due to the next month with no penalties.
      • Please be aware that you will pay two months of bills in one payment if you select this option.
    More information about the new payment platform is available at www.sugarlandtx.gov/NewWaytoPay
