Bevil Oaks residents may receive their first water bills since Hurricane Harvey just before Thanksgiving, the city said in a statement Nov. 15.

The city said many residents have been asking when they can expect their bills.

Due to Harvey's flooding, which damaged all but four out of 498 homes according to Jefferson County Judge Jeff Branick, Bevil Oaks citizens haven't received bills since Aug. 1 for July's usage. Harvey hit two days before the August billing was supposed to be finished, city officials said.
