Fort Bend County M.U.D. No. 23 is located within Fort Bend County, Fort Bend I.S.D., and the City of Houston extra-territorial jurisdiction. It was created February 15, 1978, and currently encompasses 1301 acres containing approximately 4,200 single family homes, two elementary schools, and multiple retail establishments.

M.U.D. 23 has five board members whom are all property owners and live in the district. Three Directors live in Teal Run, one lives in the Estates of Teal Run, and one lives in Winfield Lakes. The board meets on the fourth Thursday of each month at 6:00 p.m. in the offices of our attorney. Our fiscal year runs January 1-December 31. The property tax rate for 2016 is $.89 per $100 valuation. This rate is down from a high of $1.80 in 1992. Based on the tax rate, annual M.U.D. taxes for a home valued by the Fort Bend Central Appraisal District at $100,000 would be $890. For most of us with mortgages, these taxes are paid by the mortgage company from our escrow account.

The total amount of bonds AUTHORIZED by voters since creation of the district is $90 million. The amount of bonds ISSUED to date is approximately $61 million. When bonds are issued, that means the district actually SELLS that amount in bonds, receives the proceeds to pay for infrastructure construction, and then begins making debt service payments to repay the amount sold. We have the authority to issue up to $90 million, but at this time we have only issued and incurred debt on $61 million.

Vision

We envision a safe, aesthetically pleasing community that is a model for others.

Mission

We will tend to the affairs of the district as allowed by state law and ensure that all water, wastewater, and other facilities the district constructs are in operation and properly maintained.
