CROSBY – Teague Harris of Crosby Municipal Utility District (CMUD) visited the Crosby-Huffman Chamber of Commerce Thursday and spoke of neighborhood developments, annexation processes and potential provision of water and sewer to any big box commercial enterprises that wish to pay for part of the hookup outside of the CMUD current district.
Crosby MUD was established by the Texas Legislature in 1975. Their primary role is maintaining, repairing improving, and expanding the water and sewer ways. Historically, it does not concern itself with drainage issues. It does not have the problems of deep ditch supply venues. Initially, CMUD financed all of its construction though revenue. Some neighboring areas were paying for water and sewer and construction while CMUD expanded only upon garnered revenue. The possibility of financing through ad valorem taxes for construction and expansion exists but CMUD has always been financially conservative. Another factor in the history of CMUD is that it had to go to surface water earlier than many districts, in the early 1990’s.

In spite of the restrictions placed on public events due to the COVID19 pandemic, children can expect to have their picture taken with Santa, and to give him a letter that the child wrote, listing gift wishes and other Holiday greetings. To keep everyone safe, distances will be maintained, and although Santa will be in the Gazebo in the park, children will only be able to stand outside near the entry.
