David Kuehler of the North Texas Municipal Water Authority brought before the Council the fact that there will be a November 3, 2009 election concerning NCTWA's authority to continue as a taxing entity. He stated that this is not a new tax and they only want to have the authority to continue with the same tax, but add a cap of .10 per 100 gallons to the amount they are eligible to tax. He supplied supporting documentation which indicated the advantages and disadvantages to our citizens. It will save our citizens money, if this election passes.
