TROPHY CLUB — The town’s Municipal Utility District will not support a consolidation plan that would gradually dissolve the district — if such a move would not financially benefit its taxpayers, the MUD’s manager said last week.MUD manager Jennifer McKnight was the lone representative of the district at a town hall meeting at Lake Cities Church of Christ. About 100 residents attended the meeting, which was organized by the Trophy Club Town Council to discuss and answer questions about its proposal to dissolve the utility district.In addition to Trophy Club, the MUD also serves the Solana business park portion of Westlake. No Westlake town officials were present.“A consolidation requires a three-way agreement … and we at this point do not see an economic benefit or any other benefit to our customers,” McKnight said at the meeting.The MUD provides water/wastewater and fire services to residents of the MUD and to homeowners in Trophy Club’s public-improvement district.McKnight said the elected MUD board members declined to attend because she said they were not given information that had been requested from town officials.Similarly, Town Manager Mike Slye and town council members said they are having trouble understand the potential economic and structural benefits of consolidation because of what they say is as a lack of cooperation on the part of MUD officials.“Let’s present a unified financial position … so we don’t argue about the numbers,” Slye said. “I can’t get [MUD officials] to the table.”McKnight said the MUD is cooperating by providing any financial information requested by town management.Trophy Club resident Wallace Carlson, 43, was one of a number of residents who questioned why MUD board members declined to attend the meeting. Carlson, who said he has lived in the town 18 months, said it would serve the best interest of the MUD to provide thorough and accurate financial information to taxpayers.“I believe that whether you’re a MUD or a PID, you have an interest in Trophy Club moving forward in the best way possible,” Carlson said.The town plans to appoint a panel of residents to research the consolidation issue and offer feedback on what they believe would be the best solution.Slye will act as a liaison to the committee, but no elected officials will serve on the panel. McKnight said she will provide information requested by the panel but does not plan to actively participate.
