The terms and conditions of the annexation were determined by a vote of the City of Sugar Land City Council, as well as both Municipal Utility District’s Board Members for their representative districts.
Sugar Land functions under a council-manager form of government. The City Council performs a legislative role, setting broad goals and policies that match the vision of our residents. The City Manager is the Chief Administrative Officer, and manages the day to day business of the City in order to reach the goals set forth by City Council. The City of Sugar Land has a total of seven City Council Members, with four Districts. At the time of annexation, residents will be temporarily assigned to Single Member Council Districts.

Dependent upon the District, residents will see an increase or decrease in taxes once the City levies its tax in 2018. The LIDs will not be impacted by the annexation, and residents are still obligated to pay their LID taxes.
No. Residents do not need to file new exemptions to get the City's homestead and over-65 exemptions. Any exemptions on file with the appraisal district will automatically be applied to the City's tax bill in 2018.
