Montgomery County voters will head to the polls next week to cast a YEA or NAY vote on Constitutional amendments, school district bonds, and management district bonds but two people with a Conroe residence will decide the fate of over $500 million dollars in parks, sewer, water, and road bonds for one newly-created municipal utility district in Conroe.
The two voters will also cast a ballot to tax future homeowners to repay the bonds sold to finance the construction of roads, water and sewer lines and recreation, as well as vote for the five MUD board directors.
The two voters, one male and one female, are said to be residing in this trailer with newly built wooden stairs located on the western edge of the district. This residence trailer is self-evidently a temporary structure as it in no way conforms to the proposed development and hence cannot be construed as a permanent residence.
Although the two voters in this temporary dwelling have mailing addresses in Harris County, they will determine the tax rate on future homeowners in this Montgomery County MUD.
The City of Conroe first heard the presentation about the proposal to create Montgomery County Municipal Utility District 148 located off Loop 336 East as an In-City MUD during a February 2015 city council meeting. During that meeting the Friendswood Development Company presentation outlined just under 300 single-family homes selling for about $200,000 to be built on approximately 83 acres.
After the enabling legislation SB2056 became law in June 2015 and two days after the bid was posted to clear approximately 82 acres, two people registered to vote using an address inside the boundary of Municipal Utility District 148 as their residence.
