Public radio station KPFT — with studios in Montrose — bumped up its broadcasting power recently to the maximum 10,000 watts. Station manager Duane Bradley told the Houston Chronicle that KPFT is the “most solid” it’s ever been in the station’s nearly 50-year history, calling the upgrade a “future for the next generation.”

While the new, more powerful signal doesn’t expand the station’s geographic reach, it does make the current signal more “robust and solid” within the current service area, which goes as far as Clear Lake, Baytown, New Waverly and even Huntsville.

District provided services such as safety patrols by off-duty HPD officers, graffiti abatement, trash pick-up, maintenance of esplanades, among other services outlined in the Districts’ Assessment Plan, that are supplemental to services provided by the City of Houston, had been reduced in Mid-November and ceased completely as of December 11. The District had to cease the services due to unpaid assessments from some of the commercial property owners within the District. Delinquent assessments for 2016 and prior years are being collected for services that were delivered in 2017. The current lawsuit status does not affect the collection of delinquent assessments due for 2016 and prior years for services rendered for calendar year 2017. Please direct questions regarding the cessation of services to Executive Director, Ben Brewer at BBrewer@MontroseDistrict.org. We are committed to helping our neighborhood remain the safe, vibrant and attractive place to live and do business and would like to hear from you on how we can continue to work together in this effort.
