Texas Special District Local Laws Code
Sec. § 8010.151
Elections Regarding Taxes or Bonds


The district may issue, without an election, bonds and other obligations secured by:


revenue other than ad valorem taxes; or


contract payments described by Section 8010.153 (Contract Taxes).


The district must hold an election in the manner provided by Chapters 49 (Provisions Applicable to All Districts) and 54 (Municipal Utility Districts), Water Code, to obtain voter approval before the district may impose an ad valorem tax or issue bonds payable from ad valorem taxes.


The district may not issue bonds payable from ad valorem taxes to finance a road project unless the issuance is approved by a vote of a two-thirds majority of the district voters voting at an election held for that purpose.


Before the district may issue bonds, the district must enter into an agreement with the developer, the Cleveland Independent School District, and Liberty County for the transfer of land for use as the sites of facilities for the school district and for emergency services.
