Welcome to the website for Harris County Water Control and Improvement District No. 157 (“WCID 157”). We hope you find this website valuable and encourage WCID 157 residents to sign up for email alerts and stay informed about projects, meetings, and important events in the district.
The Board of Directors of WCID 157 would like to provide an update on some significant financial achievements.
- Moody’s recently upgraded WCID 157’s credit rating from “A2” to “A1”. This means that WCID 157 now has a better credit rating than about 95% of the special districts in Texas. The rating upgrade reflects WCID 157’s stable financials, strong reserve positions, and credit history. The rating upgrade helps to keep borrowing costs low for WCID 157’s capital projects, which benefits WCID 157 taxpayers.
- WCID is refinancing certain outstanding bonds to reduce debt service. On June 9, 2021, WCID 157 moved forward with the refinancing and achieved significant results. WCID 157 will realize a present value debt service savings on the refunded bonds of over 17.4 %. That is a gross savings of approximately $1,027,449 over the life of the bonds, or an annual average saving of approximately $62,269.
Notice is hereby given to all interested members of the public that the Board of Directors of WCID 157 will hold a special public meeting via telephone conference call on June 1st at 7pm.
The telephone conference call phone number is 1-877-304-9269 (toll free) and the access code is 494446.
