Your Johnson County Special Utility District staff is always here to help you. Whether you need assistance with a bill or a question about your usage, we are here to serve you. Stop by and see us during our office hours!

The District’s managing staff is on the leading edge in terms of expertise and service among rural water providers in Texas. What a good story there is to tell about the history of the District. So much has transpired over the decades to stay ahead of the growing demand for water utility service in this part of North Central Texas. It takes the right people to couple vision and initiative to bridge planning with deployment.  

Terry Kelley, General Manager Terry has been with the District 25 years and leads this fine team with over 32 years of experience in administration and planning for public water and wastewater systems.

Kathy Rice, Comptroller, came aboard in 2013. Kathy’s 20-plus years in the accounting field makes her best suited to manage the daily financial activities of the District. Budget planning, investment management, human resources, rounds out Kathy’s general duties.  

Danny Armstrong, Operations Manager  Recently the reigns of Operations Manager passed on to Danny Armstrong. Danny came aboard some 15 years ago with JCSUD. Danny’s style, initiative, and attitude are also the key ingredients in shaping the ideal leader to take operations into a new era and the next level.     

Dana Collier, System Development Manager Dana Collier’s past experience in previous roles and public planning copiously qualifies her as the District’s System Development Coordinator. This department directly deals with subdivision planning, new growth activities (concept to completion), monitors system hydraulics, maintaining GIS and system mapping; just to name a few.

Joshua Howard, Utility Services Manager  Josh Howard is the team’s newcomer. Since his arrival in 2016, Josh’s knowledge of the District’s business grows just as exponential as the responsibilities he inherits to oversee and coordinate various accounting and customer service activities.
