FISCAL IMPACT:
BACKGROUND:
In early 2018, the Township engaged consulting firms to assist with the incorporation planning process. The incorporation planning study includes public input opportunities, a financial and benchmarking/best practices analysis, a tax rate study, an assessment of law enforcement needs, a pavement management study, and a review of infrastructure management alternatives (such as the structure of MUDs and water services).

In November 2018, the preliminary results of the two contracted independent financial analyses were presented at the Township Board’s planning session. Following the November 28 public presentation of the independent reports, the Board directed the Township’s Finance Department to review the preliminary financial reports submitted by the consulting firms and provide an analysis of the major differences between the reports.

In December 2018, in preparation for a final financial model and a robust public outreach process, The Woodlands Township Board of Directors engaged The Novak Consulting Group (TNCG) as the lead firm for the remainder of the project.

At the January 23 meeting, staff reported on its review of the major differences in the independent reports. Following the staff presentation, TNCG discussed initiatives to be included in final financial model, public outreach and the upcoming schedule.

At the February 27 meeting, the consultant and Board discussed initiatives in the Financial Model, a draft of the pros and cons of incorporation, and an update on the community outreach program. In addition, the Board directed TNCG to return in April to present a proposal for additional services, including options for additional analysis on Law Enforcement.

At the April 24 planning session, TNCG will review the Animal Control initiative update and Public Works update, discuss the latest public outreach efforts, discuss the draft pros and cons of incorporation and review the upcoming schedule and next steps.
