The Woodlands Township is a special purpose district, not a city that acts as the governmental service provider for the community. It provides supplemental law enforcement, fire protection, environmental services, parks and recreation maintenance and programming, as well as economic and transportation planning, among many other services, programs and amenities. The Township is governed by a boa...rd of directors composed of seven at-large directors, each serving a two-year term and elected by voters in The Township in both Montgomery and Harris County. The current property tax rate is 23 cents per $100 of valuation and the consolidated budget exceeds $120 million.
The Township staff and Directors are committed to public safety and exceptional levels of customer service. Together, they responsibly fulfill the governance needs of the community while promoting the economic development of The Woodlands and providing services that enhance property values. The Township currently employs 457 people at three locations and eight fire stations in The Woodlands.
Residents, businesses and visitors receive excellent fire and first-responder services through The Woodlands Fire Department which employs 163 full-time personnel. They provide services from eight strategically located fire stations and the Emergency Training Center. The Woodlands now has an ISO rating of 1, largely due to the Board of Director’s goal of providing the community with the highest level of fire services.
