MUD 374 Property Tax Rate Lowered

Harris County Municipal Utility District 374’s Board of Directors voted September 14, 2017 to lower property taxes to 85 cents from the current 92 cents per one hundred dollar taxable value. HC 374 covers Phase 1 and Phase 11 of Cypress Creek Lakes. This is the largest single reduction in the tax rate since the district was formed. The reduction will still allow the district to maintain current facilities and operations. The taxable value of each individual property is set by Harris County Appraisal District so the amount of reduction will vary for each home. Each property owner will see this new rate reflected in their tax statement to be sent in December.

Sincerely,

MUD 374 Board members

Joe Sykes – President
Mike Owens – Vice President
Jennifer Naedler -Assistant Vice President
Brian Canepa – Secretary
Tom Mohr – Assistant Secretary

WHCRWA: Notice of Anticipated Fees

The Authority’s Board of Directors anticipates increasing its fees in order to fund the massive water supply projects that are needed to meet the Harris Galveston Subsidence District (“HGSD”) groundwater reduction regulations and to avoid the $8.46 per 1,000 gallons fine that the HGSD imposes for non-compliance.

These water supply projects are briefly described in the enclosed material entitled “The Rising Cost of Water.” (Five copies of this material are attached and additional copies are available for your distribution to customers, upon request.)

To build these water supply projects, the Board of Directors anticipates increasing its fees by $0.25 per 1,000 gallons effective January 1, 2018, as follows: (i) the Groundwater Reduction Plan Fee to increase from $2.45 per 1,000 gallons of groundwater pumpted to $2.70 per 1,000 gallons of groundwater pumpted, and (ii) the Surface Water Fee to increase from $2.85 per 1,000 gallons of water delivered by the Authority to $3.10 per 1,000 gallons of water delivered by the Authority. Such increase would correspondingly increase the Imported Water Fee.

At the Authority’s Board of Directors meeting scheduled for November 8, 2017, 6:00 p.m., at 20111 Saums Road, Katy, Texas 77449, the Board intends to consider adoption of the proposed fees.
