The City and the District entered into a Strategic Partnership Agreement dated as of June 5, 2012 (as amended, the “SPA”), as authorized by Section 43.0751, Texas Local Government Code, which sets forth the terms and conditions of the City’s annexation of the land within the District and on which the District will continue to exist as a limited district, Pilot Knob Limited District No. 2 (the “Limited District”), in accordance with Section 43.0751, Texas Local Government Code, and the Enabling Legislation following the City’s full- purpose annexation of the land within the District as provided in Consent Agreement and the SPA.
