Harris County Commissioner, Harris County Flood Control District to speak State of the County Luncheon presented by Generation Park on May 28

HUMBLE, TX – The annual State of the County Luncheon presented by Generation Park will be held at 11:30 a.m. on Tuesday, May 28 at Golf Club of Houston.

Harris County Commissioner, Precinct 4, R. Jack Cagle and Deputy Executive Director for the Harris County Flood Control District, Matthew Zeve, P.E. will speak at the event and will share insight with community members and leaders about the portions of Harris County within the Lake Houston Area, as well as the county as a whole.

Commissioner Cagle has served as county commissioner for Harris County Precinct 4 since 2011. As commissioner, Cagle represents nearly 1.3 million residents and manages a staff of 433 employees with a Precinct 4 budget of $283.5 million.

Cagle has spent 30 years working with and serving the citizens of Harris County Precinct 4 as an attorney, elected judge, and now county commissioner.

As a member of Commissioners Court, Cagle has also been selected to serve as a representative on the board of the Houston-Galveston Area Council and on the Board of Directors of the statewide Public Power Pool.

Commissioner Cagle is a graduate of Rice University with triple majors in economics, history, and managerial studies, as well as a graduate of Baylor Law School.

Under Zeve’s direction, the HCFCD carries out its mission to devise countywide flood damage reduction plans, implement those plans, and maintain the infrastructure. That mission is executed in the third most populated county in the United States, with a population in excess of 4.5 million, which includes the City of Houston, the nation’s fourth largest city. The District has jurisdiction over the primary stormwater facilities in the county, which consist of about 1,500 channels, totaling 2,500 miles in length, as well as more than 60 regional stormwater detention basins and a 2.5-square mile wetlands mitigation bank.

After graduating from Texas A&M University with a Bachelor’s and Master’s Degree in Civil Engineering, Zeve successfully practiced engineering as a consultant in the private industry before joining the Harris County Flood Control District in November 2015. Zeve has spent his entire professional career working on drainage projects primarily in the Houston Metropolitan area.
