  • The Renovations team at FPM now operates according to a more compelling schedule for completing work in Harris County facilities.  The Renovations team split into two crews.  One crew to operate in the evening.  The other crew to work during normal business hours.  This practical separation presents an opportunity for the evening crew to more efficiently complete work that would be slowed or possibly even prohibited while the facilities were open to the public.  As a result of the amount of work that is able to be completed by the evening crew, the day crew is able to tackle high priority tasks in a more responsive manner.
  • In April of 2017, Commissioners Court approved the Lockshop returning to FPM.  After spending a brief time with Central Technology Services, the Lockshop, which will be named Locksmith Services, returned to FPM.
  • In March of 2017, FPM restructured its Maintenance Central group.  The Maintenance Central group maintains twenty-two facilities which are collectively coined the Downtown Complex.  Prior to this restructuring, the Maintenance Central group comprised five regions.  The restructuring consolidated the five regions into four, which gives the group tighter control over maintenance of the Downtown Complex.
  • In February of 2017, FPM replaced the fan motor for cooling tower #2 at 2223 W. Loop S.

  • In January of 2017, the air compressor for the pneumatic heating system at Harris Health System's Acres Home Health Center, which provides essential medical services to neighborhoods in the north and northwest parts of Harris County, required replacement.  If the air compressor on a pneumatic heating system stops working, the system will be driven into full heat mode.  In order to ensure comfort of the patrons of that facility, FPM replaced the air compressor and added an automatic bleeder valve to get rid of any condensation.
