MUD districts are a license to steal. Texas is the only state I have lived in that allows this. It may even be only the Houston or SE part of TX that does this. My friends in Dallas don't have them. They should be illegal.

I own rental property in McKinney Texas and they have MUD district. Sad and a Rip-Off but true!

How much taxes must be paid on UN sold bonds? The MUD laws seem silly sometimes but overall seem to work OK. Being limited to 150 cents per $100 valuation keep MUD's from selling more of their "approved" bonds than MUD voters can service.

I don't like the idea that they can wait to sell the bonds. There should be a definite cutoff where you either issue them, or you must go back to voters for a reauthorization.
