Notice of Public Hearing on Tax Rate

The Dowdell PUD Defined Area will hold a public hearing on a proposed tax rate for the tax year 2022 on October 20, 2022 at 6:00 PM by videoconference at or in person at 19333 Haude Road, Spring, Texas, 77388.

Your individual taxes may increase at a greater or lesser rate, or even decrease, depending on the tax rate that is adopted and on the change in the taxable value of your property in relation to the change in taxable value of all other property. The change in the taxable value of your property in relation to the change in the taxable value of all other property determines the distribution of the tax burden among all property owners.

Visit to find a link to your local property tax database on which you can easily access information regarding your property taxes, including information about proposed tax rates and schedule public hearings of each entity that taxes your property.

Freezing Weather Tips

  • Locate and insulate pipes most susceptible to freezing — typically those near outer walls, in crawl spaces, or in the attic.
  • Winterize your house lines and irrigation system. Open your cabinet doors under your sinks to provide warm air circulation.
  • Disconnect garden hoses and shut off and insulate outside pipes and faucets.
  • Make sure you and your family know how to shut off the water in case pipes burst.
