During the next few weeks, contractors working for MUD 81 will be performing maintenance projects on some of the older sanitary sewer system pipelines within the district. Specifically in Weston Lakes Sections 3, 5 & 7, Village Sections 1 & 2 and Bradford Sections 2 & 3, crews from AIMS Companies will be water jet cleaning and televising the underground sewer lines. This process should not impact service and will not entail any field crews entering personal residences.

Secondly, in Weston Lakes Sections 1, 2 & 4, crews of To-Mex Construction and Inframark will be performing repairs on sewer line issues uncovered in previous televised inspections. Again, sewer service should not be interrupted, nor will crews need to enter personal residences. The contractors will attempt to place door hanger notices on homes in the affected area of these projects. The notices will provide additional detail and contact information for any questions or concerns. Your cooperation and patience during these improvement projects are appreciated.

The attached District Map depicts Sections (noted by the numbers in red circles) within Westin Lakes, allowing residents to view the Sections that will be affected by the Sanitary Sewer Maintenance Projects.

Water and Wastewater Update
Inframark is working diligently to ensure water and wastewater services remain online. Due to inclement weather, power outages and equipment failures are being experienced throughout the area. Dangerous road conditions are creating challenges for accessing some facilities. Our dedicated team is working on resolving issues as promptly as possible. Inframark's Customer Call Center is experiencing similar power and internet service issues that many are seeing throughout Texas and unable to consistently take calls. At this time no accounts are being turned off for delinquency due to the extreme weather event. If your matter is life threatening, please call 911.

Financial Results – Fiscal Year 2019-2020
For the fiscal year ending September 30, 2020, Fort Bend Municipal Utility District 81 had a surplus of funds from the Operating Budget. While the annual budget was planned for revenues to match expenditures, actual results showed revenues exceeding plans and expenses not occurring at expected levels. Water revenue, interest income and tax collections, which exceeded expectations, provided the majority of the revenue surplus. On the other hand, expenditure savings were generated primarily from district management expenses and a delay in infrastructure projects. The delayed infrastructure projects have been rescheduled for the 2020-2021 fiscal year and accounted for in 2020-2021 budget. Complete 2019-2020 financial results are available in the “Financial Information” tab.

The annual financial audit of the District’s activities will be posted on the Website when available.

TAX RATE FOR 2020: $0.360/$100
On September 22, 2020, the Board of Directors for Fort Bend County Municipal Utility District 81 approved the following tax rate for 2020:
Total Tax Rate(per $100 of appraised value):
This rate is applied as follows:
Maintenance and Operations:
Debt Service:
For the 2020 tax year, the overall tax rate increased $0.015/$100 (4.35%), with the increase distributed as follows: $0.009 for Maintenance and Operations (M&O) and $0.006 for Debt Service (DS). The M&O increase is driven primarily by an allocation of $432,000 in the 2020-2021 operating budget for capital improvements to District infrastructure. These improvements, guided by a 10-year Capital Improvement Plan, include televising, cleaning, and rehabilitation of sewer lines in seven sections of Weston Lakes as well as $80,000 for emergency, unplanned projects. The DS increase is designed to cover debt service for $1,300,000 in bonds to be issued for repayment of infrastructure for Sections 3 & 4 of the Reserve at Weston Lakes and the replacement of an aging high pressure water tank at Water Plant #1..

MUD 81 Update – Covid 19
During this time of social distancing and self quarantine one thing still stands true, WATER still flows!

Residents need to know they will still see Inframark trucks and field personnel performing their daily tasks that are part of maintaining the collection and distribution systems.

The appropriate personal protective equipment will be used by personnel during these daily tasks. Also, we have asked them to keep the appropriate social distance (6 feet) ifapproached by a resident.

According to the World Health Organization, “the presence of the COVID-19 virus has not been detected in drinking-water supplies and based on current evidence the risk to water supplies is low.”

EPA’s drinking water regulations require treatment at public water systems to remove or kill pathogens, including viruses.
