The ballots were finally counted and the membership of the Coupland Water Supply Corporation, which actually manages waste water for the community, has changed. The new board will consist of Martin Samuelson, Wells Mason, Scott Ging, Karen Marosko, and Tim Worthy.
The new kid on the block is Tim Worthy, who has served on the board in the past. According to his press secretary (that would be his wife, Barbara), Worthy wants to thank everyone that voted for him and wants the public to know that he will always work for the community’s best interest.
According to Mason, Martin Samuelson is the new President of the board, replacing the outgoing Jim Huntington in that capacity. Mason is the Vice-President and Marosko remains as secretary.
The board will no doubt face many challenges in the coming years, not the least of which will be the need to expand the capacity of the water treatment plant. There is room for only a few more connections and Coupland is likely to continue slowly growing.
It may not look like much but we would miss it if it were gone.

Dear Coupland Water Supply Corporation Owners
( You own this sewer system)
I would like to introduce myself, I am Tim Worthy, My wife and I own the Old Coupland Inn and Dancehall and have done so for over 20 years.
I was on the original board of directors to build, and install this sewer system apx. 17 years ago. This system was built with grant money and tax money from Williamson County for the community of Coupland.
The Coupland Water Supply Corporation’s sole duty was to oversee and maintain the sewer system. Manville Water Supply Corporation has nothing to do with this system except the billing because they have access to the meters.
My goal if you vote for me is to lower the sewer rates and connection fees to affordable rates and to maintain the system with your help. Remember this is YOUR system! At the present time you are paying $7.00 per 1,000 gallons of wastewater and a $5,000.00 fee to connect to your existing sewer system.
I would appreciate your vote.
Your canidate for your board
If you have any questions please feel free to call me. Thanks
