What are the requirements for being a Director?

Chapter 54, Texas Water Code, requires MUD Directors to be at least 18 years of age, a resident of Texas, and either a qualified voter in the district or an owner of taxable land within the district. Certain persons are disqualified from serving as a district director. A developer of property in the district is disqualified.  Certain relatives, employees, consultants, and parties to specified contracts also may not serve on the Board. A district is subject to Chapter 171, Texas Local Government Code, which regulates conflicts of interest on the board.
