The Sonterra Municipal Utility District (MUD) is a political entity created to serve the water and wastewater requirements of a defined area near Jarrell, Texas.
The MUD has the power to levy taxes to support its operations and facilities and is generally responsible for preserving the value of properties within its boundaries.
You are! The Sonterra MUD is governed by a Board of Directors. The five elected directors contract with several professional companies and specialists to provide management, billing, legal, financial, engineering, maintenance and other services to the district.
The Sonterra MUD Board of Directors meets on the 3rd Monday of each month at the Sonterra MUD office. These meetings are open to the public and begin at 6:00 p.m. Notice of each meeting is posted 72 hours in advance at 113 Limestone Terrace.
The Sonterra MUD provides water and wastewater (sewer) service and parks maintenance and upkeep.
Other services, such as solid waste (trash) pickup and electrical power, are provided by other outside entities.
The district’s service fees, deposits and other charges are outlined here. Charges for water usage are based on the number of gallons used and are broken into several rate categories. Detailed information about the district’s residential and commercial policies, rates, fees and service charges may be found in the district’s Rate Order.
