Right now our local governance is spread among 19 different county, local agencies and districts, and 70 different elected officials.
Incorporation consolidates government services (like roads, law enforcement, etc) and controls (building plans, noise ordinances, etc) under a single government entity called a city.
After incorporation and if the MUDs are adopted, government services and controls will be consolidated into a single entity with 6 elected officials. A vote for incorporation doesn't eliminate the MUDs, but a city would provide the means to adopt the MUDs into a city water department in the future - the annual savings from that would be significant and would eliminate the MUD property tax altogether.
Please share these facts with anyone that votes. You're welcome to share images to social media or send in an email to all your friends. Thank you for visiting.
