Dozens of residents in South Bexar County are frustrating and looking for help before being forced to pay up thousands of dollars.
According to about 30 homeowners in the Butterfield Trails subdivision, the developer who created their subdivision is now collecting thousands of dollars for a public improvement district, or PID.
Basically, the money would go toward making improvements to the area.
However, residents claim they never agreed to that, while the developer claims the city did agree to it before the homes were built.
Now to avoid a multi-million dollar lawsuit the city is looking to approve an ordinance that would create an assessment for the homeowners to pay the money owed for the PID.
Many residents voiced their opinion and frustration Thursday.
“I’m moving out of Elmendorf,” said resident Michael Powell. “I won’t give another dime of my tax money to the City of Elmendorf. That’s how bad it’s gotten for some of us here”.
Thursday’s city council meeting ran over 3 hours before a decision was made.
