Long Time Resident and MUD Director Honored

State Representative Valoree Swanson honored the memory of longtime resident and board member William “Bill” Black for his many years of service to our community at the September MUD Board meeting. Among other volunteer work, he served on the Northampton MUD board from 1999 until his death on April 25, 2017. Representative Swanson is pictured presenting his wife Mary Lou, and his son Alan, with an official resolution passed by the Texas House of Representatives honoring Bill Black and a flag flown over the Texas State Capitol in his honor on the day he passed away. Director Black will be missed by the Northampton community.


Dumpster for Flood Debris

The District has placed a dumpster for flood debris at the rear of the Inway parking lot. Residents may direct their contractors to use these dumpsters. Understandably, dumpsters are in short supply as is the process to have them emptied. Please be respectful that this is for residents whose homes have flooded and is for flood debris.

If we can be of further assistance, please feel free to contact our office.

Our Thanks to the Many Volunteers

In the wake of hurricane Harvey, the gulf coast has experienced catastrophic destruction and devastation. Unfortunately, Northampton was not spared. Over 140 of our neighbors experienced flooding.

The Northampton MUD Board wants to express its thanks to the official first responders as well as scores of good Samaritans who came to the aid of our residents. Certainly, lives were saved due to everyone’s efforts. Additionally, we would like to express our gratitude to local churches and businesses for their support. The district’s engineer, Jones & Carter has had several of its employees here in the subdivision helping homeowners.

Most importantly, we want to thank Northampton’s residents as well as those our neighbors in Auburn Lakes for lending a hand to their fellow neighbor. It is this sense of community which has made Northampton a wonderful place in which to live.

Our thoughts and prayers are with everyone who has suffered loss during this time.

Garbage Collection Service

The MUD has been in contact with our garbage collection company, Residential Recycling and Refuse of Texas. They hope regular garbage pickup will resume on Friday. Household garbage is the first priority, and if capacity permits, they will pick up large heavy trash curbside later on Friday.

We hope to schedule additional days for bulk item pickup. In addition to roads, landfills and recycling centers have been closed.

We ask for your patience as we are working to service our residents as best possible during the aftermath of this storm. We will continue to keep you informed. You may contact our office M-F 8:30-4:30 at 281-376-3499.

Cardboard Box Drive

In an effort to help our residents who have flooded, we are organizing a cardboard box drive. As the water recedes and our neighbors are able to access their homes, cardboard boxes will be in demand. If you have cardboard boxes that you would like to donate, please bring them to the MUD Building.
Boxes must be collapsed. If you would like to donate packing tape, that will be appreciated as well.

You may drop off or pick up boxes during our office hours: 8:30 – 4:30 M-F. For more information, please call our office at 281-376-3499.
