SUBJECT MATTER:
Receive, consider and act on a resolution casting votes for the Montgomery Central Appraisal District Special District candidate to be placed on a county-wide ballot for the Board of Directors of the Montgomery Central Appraisal District;
FISCAL IMPACT:
N/A
BACKGROUND:
The Woodlands Township is treated as a conservation and reclamation district for the purpose of participating in the Montgomery Central Appraisal District (MCAD) election process. The election is held every two years. While there are five board positions to be filled in this election, the Township can only participate in the election for the Special District candidate and the election takes place in three phases. Earlier this year, the Township Board nominated Bruce Tough as a candidate for this election. Biff Picone currently serves in the position.
 
The Woodlands Township is eligible to cast 210 votes for one of the Special District candidates. The Township has 210 votes out of a total of 725 votes for all Special Districts. All of the Township’s 210 votes will be cast for a single nominee. The Township’s vote must be cast before August 15, 2015. The winner of this Special District election will advance to the October MCAD election, where all eligible entities will vote in a more complex voting process.
 
In the October MCAD election, the Township will be eligible to vote; however, the Township and other special districts will only be able to vote in the October MCAD election for the nominee that won the summer Special District election, regardless of whether the Township voted for this candidate during this initial process.
 
At the time of posting, the election-related documents had not been received from MCAD. The following documents will be provided at the Board meeting: memo from Chief Appraiser Mark Castleschouldt, copy of the official ballot and a copy of the resolution casting the Township’s votes.
RECOMMENDATION:
Authorize a resolution casting votes for Special District candidate Bruce Tough and authorize the Chairman to sign the official ballot.
