Update regarding the District’s assistance with resident storm brush debris removal:
As described in the update provided to the Brushy Creek MUD community last week on 2/27/2023, the District stepped back in assisting residents with winter ice storm brush debris removal in order to evaluate other more financially viable options.
Last night, the Brushy Creek MUD Board of Directors met to review several promising options. We believe that we have found at least one option that is both financially viable for assisting the community with the winter storm brush removal, and, will meet the District’s continuing needs for ongoing maintenance operations.
We are hoping to finalize purchase of the equipment early this coming week, and will provide a more complete update once we acquire possession.

On Thursday, February 23, the Brushy Creek MUD Board of Directors met and
evaluated the results of our recent project with Good Guys Tree Service. Unfortunately,
their service level response didn’t meet the District’s expectations;
therefore, we didn’t extend the contract.
The Brushy Creek MUD is part of
a large unincorporated area in Williamson County without the same
responsibilities nor resources as a city. The BCMUD is responsible for
providing water, wastewater, drainage, and parks and recreation services for
our community. In addition, the District coordinates solid waste (trash)
collection services. Although brush removal is the homeowner’s responsibility,
the District stepped forward to assist with brush removal due to the
extreme devastation of the winter ice storm.
However, after considering our
vendors’ capabilities, and potential costs exceeding $500,000, the Board has
stepped back to reevaluate viable financial options,
if any exist. Options include:
technology such as air burners to eliminate brush waste,
an RFP for a comprehensive brush removal solution,
the County to extend Landfill hours and eliminate homeowner fees,
community-based groups for debris cleanup.
