Tex. Local Gov't Code Section 372.021
Special Improvement District Fund


A municipality or county that intends to create a public improvement district may by ordinance or order establish a special improvement district fund in the municipal or county treasury.


The municipality or county annually may levy a tax to support the fund.


The fund may be used to:


pay the costs of planning, administration, and an improvement authorized by this subchapter;


prepare preliminary plans, studies, and engineering reports to determine the feasibility of an improvement; and


if ordered by the governing body of the municipality or county, pay the initial cost of the improvement until temporary notes, time warrants, or improvement bonds have been issued and sold.


The fund is not required to be budgeted for expenditure during any year, but the amount of the fund must be stated in the municipality’s or county’s annual budget. The amount of the fund must be based on an annual service plan that describes the public improvements for the fiscal year.


A grant-in-aid or contribution made to the municipality or county for the planning and preparation of plans for an improvement authorized under this subchapter may be credited to the special improvement district fund.
