Title: Texas Emergency Services Districts in High Growth Areas
Author: Jarrett, James E.; Anchondo, J. Jorge
Abstract: Assessment of financial and operational outlooks for Emergency Service Districts (ESDs) in rapidly growing areas of Texas. The study finds that a category of medium and large ESDs in high-growth areas face significant challenges because of increasing demands for service without an opportunity to raise additional revenues. It identifies statutory and administrative obstacles which prevent ESDs from seeking tax increases through local option elections, or other financial remedies such as consolidation.
