Trail of The lakes MUD will be having a Town Hall meeting at Whispering Pines Elementary on Wednesday October 15 at 7 PM. We encourage all homeowners to attend and ask all the questions about the New Constable Contract.
Dear AFCA Members,
A letter of information from your BOT:
This letter is to inform you the Atascocita Forest Community Association Board of Trustees had NOTHING to do with your water bill increase. We were misrepresented as a community to the Trail of the Lakes MUD District and were NOT aware this was happening. We had and do not have control of what the Trail of the Lakes MUD Board did by signing a Constables Contract and increasing your bill!!!
The AFCA has been very happy with our Security and the Crime Stats show that. Members of the BOT will be in attendance at the next MUD Board meeting to express our thoughts on how this was represented to the MUD without regard in contacting the AFCA. We urge home owners to attend also. Here are the minutes of the MUD Board that anyone can read at www.trailofthelakesmud.com.

PRESENTATION FROM THE CONSTABLE
Lieutenant Escobar presented information to the Board regarding Constable services
available to the District, a copy of which is attached hereto. Lieutenant Escobar then explained
that many community associations are shifting the responsibility of security contracts with local
law enforcement agencies to utility districts and added that such transition has been successful.
Lieutenant Escobar added that a security contract with the Constable would cover the entire
District and would include patrol of the District's facilities.
Lieutenant Escobar then explained that the Constables also offer bike patrol, vacation
watch, response to home alarm systems and also handles matters relating to computer crimes.
Captain Wieghat also explained that the Constable works with other agencies in the community.
Lieutenant Escobar then made recommendations on the number of deputies necessary to patrol
the District due to its size. Ms. Adams informed the Board that the cost for one (1) deputy is
$63,932.00 per year with a 70 percent (70%) contract with Harris County, and that three (3)
deputies would cost the District approximately $191,796.00 annually. Lieutenant Escobar then
reviewed the deadlines for potential effective start dates.
Lieutenant Escobar and Captain Wieghat further presented the Constable's services and
the Board thanked them for their presentation.
Lieutenant Escobar and Captain Wieghat exited the meeting at this time.
