This page is a collection of videos covering the many benefits of incorporation. This page is for people that have the focus and will to research the facts and not blindly follow the threatening and false signs placed around our town this election season.
In this seven minute video, Chairman Bunch speaks about the advantages of incorporation at last month's meeting when incorporation was finally placed on the ballot.
Fire Chief Buck's entire presentation is here but watch for Director Milner's comments at 6 minutes in and please take in the next 4 minutes to see how EMS services in Creekside can be of the caliber of the rest of The Woodlands upon incorporation.
In this 5-minute video you'll hear (from Governmental Affairs Director Todd Stephens) about how The Township, as the special district that it is now, was not eligible for American Rescue Plan Act funding but cities were.
This video is one hour and 15 minutes long and includes the 5 year plan, tax rate calculation and incorporation financial model.
There are 2 threats of annexation. 1. While we're in an RPA (Regional Participation Agreement) that has us paying a sixteenth of our sales tax to Houston and Conroe for the freedom from annexation, if that agreement "went away for any reason", we would be subject to the laws that existed when that agreement was signed. When that agreement was signed, unilateral annexation was the law in Texas. Contracts can't be impaired by legislation (for more on this watch starting at 3:30)
2. The other threat is that legislation can change. For visitors of my other site, StopOurSinking.com, we're all too aware that every other year the Texas legislature meets and the rug can be pulled out from under our feet. (for more on this watch 15 seconds 10:25 - 10:40)
In this 13 minute video from last year, Gordy Bunch (current Chairman of The Township board) talks about the status of incorporation studies, the information is still relevant today.
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.
