Welcome to ESD#2

An Emergency Services District (ESD) is a local government created by voters in an area to fund fire protection, emergency medical services, or both. More than 300 districts are operating in Texas, and more are added at almost every uniform election date.  

Ellis County ESD #2 contracts for fire and emergency medical services with nearby Midlothian and Ovilla.

ESD#2 meetings alternate between the Ovilla and Midlothian fire departments.

The tax rate will effectively be decreased by 5.82 percent and will lower taxes for maintenance and operations on a $100,000 home by approximately $4.97.
