District Information

Savannah is located within the boundaries of the Denton County Fresh Water Supply District No. 10 (“District”). The Commissioner’s Court of Denton County authorized the creation of the District because Savannah was NOT located¬†in a city. The District is a political subdivision of the State of Texas, and functions similar to a city. The governing body is composed of five directors, elected by the voters in the District. The undeveloped future phases of Savannah are also located within the District. The District also includes properties in addition to Savannah. The District constructs and maintains water, sanitary sewer, storm drainage, roads, trash removal, etc. within the boundaries of the District.

In order to pay for construction and maintenance costs, the State of Texas has authorized the District to levy an ad valorem tax (property tax), similar to a City. The current tax rate for the District is $1.00 per $100 of assessed value. The District has the authority to issue a maximum of $221.6 million in bonds to pay for District roads, water lines, sewer lines, and storm drains. There is no city tax. Your tax bill should reflect the following taxing entities: Denton County, Denton ISD and Denton County Fresh Water Supply District No. 10.

Total Ad Valorem Taxes: 2,814914


Fire and Police Protection

Fire protection is provided by the Town of Aubrey Fire Department. A fire station is located on Navo Road, just north of SH 380, less than two miles west of Savannah.

The Denton County Sheriff’s Office is the primary law enforcement agency for DCFWSD #10 and is responsible for providing full law enforcement services including emergency response, making arrests, etc.

In the event of an emergency, DCFWSD #10 residents are encouraged to call 9-1-1 and your call will be answered by the Denton County Sheriff’s Office.

Residents of DCFWSD #10 also benefit from an added level of law enforcement protection. Recognizing a need for community policing, the District contracts with armed, off-duty peace officers licensed by the State of Texas to provide a supplemental layer of law enforcement. The officers, most of whom are local to Denton County, patrol Savannah and Artesia on a variety of shifts that vary depending on the season community needs, and crime trends. Their primary responsibilities are to patrol Savannah and Artesia, identify potential criminal solutions, stop a crime that is in progress, and work with the Denton County Sheriff’s Office to address any law enforcement issues.

Previous law enforcement service contracts were shared with other communities, which greatly impacted the amount of time the patrols could spend in each community and only provided services on certain days of the week. The new contract provides daily patrol services dedicated solely to Savannah and Artesia.

The Denton County Sheriff’s Office non-emergency number is 940-349-1600.
