Texas Water Code

Sec. § 54.0165
Addition to District of Land in Extraterritorial Jurisdiction of Municipality


A district may not add land that is located in the extraterritorial jurisdiction of a municipality unless the governing body of the municipality gives its written consent by ordinance or resolution in accordance with this subsection and Section 54.016 (Consent of City). In giving its consent, the municipality may not place any conditions or other restrictions on the expansion of the political subdivision other than those expressly permitted by Section 54.016 (Consent of City)(e).


The procedures under Section 54.016 (Consent of City) governing a municipality’s refusal to consent to the creation of a district apply to a municipality that refuses to consent to the addition of land to a district under this section.


An owner of land in the area proposed to be added to the district may not unreasonably refuse to enter into a contract for water or sanitary sewer services with the municipality under Section 54.016 (Consent of City)(c).
Added by Acts 2007, 80th Leg., R.S., Ch. 703 (H.B. 2091), Sec. 4, eff. June 15, 2007.
