Message from the Board of Directors

The Board of Directors of Pecan Grove Municipal Utility District (the “District”) began negotiating a proposed settlement with Jones & Carter related to flooding in Plantation, Sections 4 and 5 on September 8, 2017. As of November 8, 2017, Jones & Carter has not yet accepted the District’s terms and conditions which the Board feels best protect and compensate the District.

We have received calls from homeowners reporting that you have not yet received letters from Jones & Carter. At the October 24, 2017 meeting, Bob Aylward of Jones & Carter announced Jones & Carter would be providing a letter outlining a compensation/reimbursement program to homeowners damaged by flooding in Plantation, Sections 4 and 5. The Board specifically requested that Jones & Carter address individual losses incurred by homeowners, but has no control over the distribution of these letters. Jones & Carter’s offer to compensate individual homeowners is unrelated to the District’s settlement of claims against Jones & Carter; however, the Board will continue to request that Jones & Carter develop a compensation program for affected homeowners.
