A Burleson County community is one step closer to consolidating its water resources.
County Commissioners approved the formation of the Beaver Creek Water Control Improvement District at a special called meeting Wednesday night.
They then appointed five residents to serve as temporary board members. This paves the way for the board to begin work on a bond election, tentatively set for November.
Beaver Creek residents will then get to vote on whether to sell $3.5 million in bonds to fund a new water system for their community.
Currently, residents must provide their own water from private wells.
