SEDONA LAKES MUNICIPAL UTILITY DISTRICT NO. 1
Frequently Asked Questions

    
What is Sedona Lakes Municipal Utility District No. 1?
Sedona Lakes Municipal Utility District No. 1 (the “District”) was created by Order of the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality dated February 22, 2008 as a conservation and reclamation district.  Specifically, the District is a political subdivision of the State of Texas operating under the provisions of Article XVI, Section 59 of the Texas Constitution and Chapters 49 and 54 of the Texas Water Code.  

Who is Affected?
The District is an approximately 504.6591-acre mixed-use community located in Brazoria County within the extraterritorial jurisdiction of the City of Manvel, Texas.  The District includes the Sedona Lakes residential community.

What is the Purpose of the District?
The purpose of the District is to provide water, sewer and drainage facilities and road improvements to the property located within the boundaries of the District.  State law gives the District the following powers, among others:  (1) to incur debt, (2) to levy taxes, (3) to charge for services and adopt rules for those services, (4) to enter into contracts, and (5) to obtain easements.  

Tax bonds may be issued to finance the construction of the water, sewer and drainage facilities and road improvements within the District.  After the bonds are issued, the District’s board of directors must levy an annual property tax sufficient to pay the District’s outstanding debt.  This tax is levied on all property in the District based on its appraised value.  The District also has the authority to levy an annual property tax for maintenance and operations purposes.  Currently, the District’s total tax rate is $1.25 per $100 assessed valuation.   

Who Governs the District?
The District is governed by a board of directors consisting of five property owners within the District.  These directors are responsible for the on-going business of the District. The District may employ an operator to carry out the day-to-day operations of the District.

What about City Taxes?
No property within the boundaries of the District is within any city limits.  As no property within the District is within any city’s limits, property owners and residents in the District do not have to pay city property taxes.  However, taxes must be paid to the County, school district, emergency services district, drainage district and any other special districts that may exist.
