As planning for the new Trophy Club Town Hall moves forward, the Town Council has begun to examine possible uses for the Annex (Public Services) Building where the majority of Town Staff currently office. Council is looking to the future and how the building could best serve the citizens, including converting the structure into a community space, such as meeting rooms, classroom space or a senior activity center. To that end, on January 12, 2016 Council took action to present two options for Trophy Club Municipal Utility District No. 1 (TC MUD) Board consideration:

  1. Request that the TC MUD Board donate and transfer the title to the land that the Annex Building is built on, and all necessary surrounding property required to maintain and enter the Annex Building, with closing and survey costs paid for by the Town, OR
  2. Upon Town Staff vacating the Annex Building, TC MUD pay the Town balance owed on the debt for the Annex Building estimated at $318K for the purchase of the structure.

Trophy Club citizens have paid for the building over the years and either the Town or TC MUD can determine how the building will best service the community. The building was built by the Town in 2006 on TC MUD land, thus the building technically belongs to TC MUD.
