Maintenance Tax

At an election in 1983, voters in the District approved and passed an operations and maintenance tax of $0.25 per $100 valuation of taxable property. This tax was reduced to zero by the District in 1994. From 1994-2015, the District’s sole source of revenue for operations, maintenance, and capital improvements had been the water and sewer alone. This prevented the District from lowering water rates. Faced with increasing costs and an aging system, the District reinstated the maintenance tax in 2017. In addition, the District levies a debt service tax. The debt service tax combined with the maintenance tax makes up the total tax rate per $100 of taxable property value (as determined by Harris County Appraisal District.)
