Mission



The Fate Municipal Development District (MDD) was created by voters in November, 2014 and began levying a 1/2 percent sales tax starting January 1, 2015 on all items in the district that are subject to the general sales tax. The MDD jurisdiction includes the City of Fate and its extra-territorial jurisdiction (that area that extends outward from the city limits to one mile) and is governed by a 5-member Board of Directors who are appointed by the City Council.

It is the mission of the MDD to aid the City of Fate and interested private or public entities in making the community a better place to live, work and do business. In so doing, the MDD may help develop and finance any permissible project as defined in Chapter 377 of the Texas Local Government Code and that benefits, strengthens and diversifies the economic base of Fate.
