About Block House MUD
What is a MUD?
A Municipal Utility District (MUD) is a political subdivision of the
State of Texas authorized by the Texas Water Code to provide services within its boundaries.
Services can include water, garbage and recycling pickup, deed restriction enforcement,
operation of pools and parks, recreational opportunities. A tax assessment funds these
services to maintain high quality services.
MUDs have greater flexibility than a city because residents have a more narrowly defined sense of neighborhood and more interest in their community. MUD board members are residents and are elected to four year terms.
