  2. What is the purpose of the election on May 5, 2018?

    The purpose of the bond election is to obtain voter approval for $75,000,000 in bonds to be issued in various increments in the future. The bonds will pay for rehabilitation and improvements in the District, and reimburse developers for payment of water, sewer, and drainage facilities for new developments.

  3. Does the election mean that tax rates will increase in the District?

    The Board of Directors of the District is committed to maintaining the same level tax rate or reducing the District's tax rate whenever possible. The District makes every effort to use bond funds to do expensive upgrades, to avoid water and sewer cost increases to residents.

  4. How are the facilities?

    The District’s water and sewer systems are currently in good condition and meet all state and federal standards. Hurricane Harvey forced a few expensive repairs, some of which were reimbursed by FEMA.
