PID Assessments are payments made to cover the costs associated with improvements and services in the District. There are two types of assessments in The Town of Trophy Club Public Improvement District Number 1 (The Highlands at Trophy Club).
- The first type of assessment is a fixed assessment that is allocated to each lot (PDF) located within the District to pay for improvements that provide a special benefit to the properties within the District.
- The second type of assessment is an annual emergency services assessment (PDF) that pays the District's proportionate share of fire services to the District. Fire Services are operated by the Trophy Club Municipal Utility District Number 1 (TC MUD1). For all residents to pay an equal share, fire service costs are an assessment for residents who live in the PID but are folded into the TC MUD1 tax for residents in the MUD District.
- Effective October 1, 2015, a monthly surcharge (Annual Capital Improvements and Maintenance Charge (PDF)) was added to PID residents' monthly utility bills to pay the PID portion of TC MUD1 operations and maintenance budget and anticipated new debt for infrastructure improvements. The surcharge is recalculated annually. For example, in the Calendar Year 2018, the fee was $11.80 per connection per month.
