Wilco Emergency Services District #11 Shenandoah


Meetings are generally held the 3rd Tuesday every month at 6:00 p.m. at 3003 Blue Ridge Dr., Cedar Park, Texas. 

This is Shenandoah Baptist Church, in the Education Center behind the main church building.

Note: For any decisions of this meeting to be incontestably binding, the official agenda announcement for any upcoming meeting shall be posted and made continually available outside the Williamson County Courthouse, for a minimum of 3 days in advance of this monthly board meeting. Meetings to adopt a budget and tax rate will be posted 7 days in advance.

Your board requires 5 members serving staggered 2 year terms to continue operation. We are always recruiting neighbors willing to sit on the board.

It’s fun, not hard work, and it matters. As a result of some great organizational efforts, and initial hard work, from the original board (big kudos to former board member Evelyn Brengle for being the backbone of “get it done”) the monthly meetings are quick and effective as we follow a simple checklist. Usually less than an hour, the only “long” meetings are the once a year budgeting, and even that is typically less than 2 hours.

You literally can’t find better grass-roots experience in how your government can correctly operate in this democratic republic. You’ll learn a lot, and serve your neighbors.

If you’d like to learn more, feel free to contact any of the board members. If you’ve heard enough and are ready to submit your resume, it’s as easy as emailing it to Wilco Commissioner Cynthia Long’s office, attention Kathy Pierce – kpierce –@t– wilco.org.

Thanks!

On September 19, 2017 the district finalized and adopted this next fiscal year’s (FY2017) budget and a $.10 per $100 tax rate

Burn Permits:
Any outside burning may be restricted at any time by county or Cedar Park ordinances (which typically extend to the ETJ in which we all reside). When there is no specific burn ban in effect, permits are required for outside burning of yard waste. Information on burn permits can be obtained by contacting the
City of Cedar Park 512-401-5200

The ESD’s contract with Cedar Park:
A 5-year contract for fire protection services with the City of Cedar Park was completed and executed by both parties in December of 2012 and went into effect January 1, 2013.For all intents and purposes, Shenandoah residents will not see any change in emergency response services from what has been the norm for the last 5 years.
