Notice of Public Hearing on Tax Rate

Cinco Municipal Utility District No. 5 will hold a public hearing on a proposed tax rate for the tax year 2022 on September 13, 2022 at 4:30 pm at Willow Fork Country Club, 21055 Westheimer Parkway, Katy, TX. Your individual taxes may increase at a greater or lesser rate, or even decrease, depending on the tax rate that is adopted and on the change in the taxable value of your property in relation to the change in taxable value of all other property. The change in the taxable value of your property in relation to the change in the taxable value of all other property determines the distribution of the tax burden among all property owners.

Visit Texas.gov/PropertyTaxes to find a link to your local property tax database on which you can easily access information regarding your property taxes, including information about proposed tax rates and scheduled public hearings of each entity that taxes your property.

Drought Contingency Implementation of Stage 1

North Fort Bend County Water Authority (NFBWA) is recommending that districts they serve implement Stage 1 of their Drought Contingency Plans.  This will go into effect June 30th, and continue until notice is provided that the implementation has been lifted.

The goal is a 10% reduction in all water use and is currently voluntary. Mandatory measures may be imposed, if a water shortage continues.

  • Please conserve water daily under the following guidelines:
  • District customers are requested to voluntarily reduce all water usage.
  • Check for and repair all leaks, including sprinkler systems, leaky faucets, and/or running toilets.
  • All outdoor water use should be avoided between the hours of 6:00 a.m. and 10:00 a.m. and between the hours of  6:00 p.m and 12:00 a.m (midnight).
  • Customers with even-numbered addresses should limit outdoor water usage, including yard watering, to even-numbered days.
  • Customers with odd-numbered addresses should limit outdoor water usage, including yard watering, to odd-numbered days.
