Cypress Hill Board Proposes a Lower Tax Rate for 2019

The Cypress Hill MUD Board is proposing to set a 2019 tax rate of $0.72 per $100 assessed valuation, a reduction of 3 cents from the 2018 tax rate of $0.75. The Board continues to reduce its tax rate as its finances permit, going from a tax rate of $1.25 in 2006 to a proposed tax rate of $0.72 in 2019.

Because appraised values in the District have increased over 2018 values, taxpayers can expect a tax bill from the District in approximately the same amount as last year.

The District cautions that other political subdivisions (like Harris County) plan to increase their tax rate so taxpayers may see an overall increase in their tax bills. Taxes are due on January 31, 2020.

The District welcomes comments on the proposed tax rate at its next meeting to be held on October 18, 2019 at 11 a.m., at the Sydney Harbour Clubhouse. Written comments may be sent through the contact form on the website. The tax rate will be finalized after the public comment period on October 18.

Cypress Creek Watershed

The Houston-Galveston Area Council (H-GAC) is kicking off an effort to develop a Watershed Protection Plan for Cypress Creek. The aim of this project is to develop locally-supported, voluntary strategies to reduce sources of pollution, primarily bacteria, within the watershed.
The first public information meetings for this project will be held:

One of the purposes of these introductory meetings will be to receive nominations of local stakeholders to serve on a Steering Committee to provide overall guidance for this project. There will also be other opportunities for public feedback as the project moves forward.
Additional information on the project can be found at www.cypresspartnership.com.

Why Your Water Bill Is Increasing

Cypress Hill MUD No. 1 customers can expect to see an increase in their next water bill due to an increase in the fee imposed by the North Harris County Regional Water Authority (the “Regional Authority”). The fee increased April 1, 2019 from $3.40 per 1,000 gallons of water to $3.85 per 1,000 gallons of water.

Cypress Hill MUD No. 1 is mandated by state law to participate in the Regional Authority, which was established to bring surface water to North Harris County. All municipal utility districts within its boundaries must pay the Regional Authority a fee on each 1,000 gallons of water pumped from wells or purchased from the Regional Authority. Cypress Hill MUD No. 1 passes the fee through to its customers with a 5% mark-up so it can pay the fee on water used in district operations and not billed to customers.

The fees charged by Cypress Hill MUD No. 1 for operation of its water and sewer system have not changed in more than four years; however, customers will see an increase in their bills because of the Regional Authority fee. This fee is expected to continue increasing annually because of the cost of converting to surface water. For more information on the project, see www.NHCRWA.org.

You can control the increase in your water bill by using less water. Please go to the Water page to get water conservation pointers.
