Freeze Watch

Cypress Hill MUD 1 residents, it is time to prepare for colder temperatures! There is a Freeze Watch in effect for Sunday night through Tuesday morning, February 14th – February 16, 2021. Temperatures are expected to drop to freezing levels overnight.

How can District residents prepare? Practice the “Four P’s” as the cold fronts set in:

People:

  • Dress in warm clothing, wear coats and gloves when outdoors.
  • Protect children and the elderly. Never leave them in a cold place or vehicle.
  • Temperatures are predicted to be in the teens Monday night and Tuesday morning.

Pets:

  • Bring your pets indoors.
  • Provide a warm, safe place for them to eat and sleep.

Pipes:

  • Prevent frozen pipes and damage to your home by opening the cabinets under the kitchen and bathroom sinks to allow warm air to circulate and warm the pipes.
  • Insulate outdoor faucets and exposed pipes and be sure to disconnect and drain hoses from outdoor spigots.

Plants:

  • Protect plants from freezing by covering them with plant-cover fabric, or a light blanket with plastic sheeting on top of it.
  • Hydrate plants early so they can absorb and stay healthy through the cold.

Additionally, there are a few vehicle-safety tips to observe during winter weather:

  • Keep your gas tank full.
  • Have tire pressure checked.
  • Have a phone charger, first aid kit, blankets, and jumper cables in your car.
  • Check local road conditions at www.houstontranstar.org. State highway information available at www.drivetexas.org.

Lastly, Fire Departments have provided some safety tips surrounding space heaters and other supplemental heating sources during the colder days:

  • Never leave a space heater unattended or a child unattended with a space heater.
  • Keep all combustible materials (including yourself!) at least three (3) feet away from the heater.
  • Never overload outlets or breakers.
  • Do not use extension cords for the heater.
  • Always turn it off if leaving the room and/or going to sleep.

No Boil Water Notice

Cypress Hill Municipal Utility District residents may have learned that there was a main line break that is affecting the City of Houston. A boil water notice has been suggested for residents of the City of Houston only.

This news post is to let Cypress Hill MUD residents know this suggested boil water notice and main line break will not affect the District. The District does not receive any service or water from the City of Houston, and the system is working as designed and without issue.

Again, the District will not be affected in any way by the situation in the City of Houston.

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.

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.
