Overview

The Angleton Better Living Corporation (ABLC) is an independent corporation created under the Development Corporation Act of 1979. ABLC board members are appointed by City Council. ABLC is funded by a 0.005¢ sales tax voted for by the Citizens of Angleton.
With the passage of Proposition No. 1 on August 15, 2000, the Council approved Ordinance No. 2472 authorizing the 4B sales & use tax at the rate of one-half of one percent (.005) to be used for the following purposes: provisions for payment of the costs of land, buildings, equipment, facilities, improvements and maintenance and operation costs for community centers, parks, recreational facilities and drainage improvements in flood prone areas in the City limits, which are beyond the responsibility of the Angleton Drainage District.
The affairs of the Corporation shall be managed by a board of directors which shall be composed of seven (7) persons appointed by the City Council, who are residents of the City. Two (2) members of the board of directors shall be members of the City Council (the "Council member Class") and five (5) members shall be persons who are not members of the City council and who are not employees of the City (“The Citizen member Class").
