Cecilia Roberts - President   Cecilia@blockhousemud.com

Cecilia Roberts has called Block House Creek her home since 1983, when her family became the sixth family to move into the community. A native Austinite, Cecilia became curious about the inner workings of a municipal utility district in 1984, which led to her current role as an elected official on the Block House MUD Board of Directors.

Director Roberts raised three awesome children in Block House Creek, and is now the proud grandmother to four handsome grandsons. She loves that her youngest daughter and son-in-law have purchased a home to raise their son in Block House Creek.

For over 30 years, Director Roberts has focused on inspiring, developing and planning continuous improvements and maintenance of the District pools, playscapes, parks and greenbelt amenities, as well as the Walker House. She has a passion for making sure that all residents of Block House Creek experience a life of quality and enjoyment.

A licensed REALTOR® since 2001, Director Roberts is currently the Vice President of Sales for Coldwell Banker United, REALTORS®. Based on years of experience in the real estate and legal fields, as well as involvement with County government and volunteer efforts, Director Roberts possesses an extensive knowledge and understanding for how things work. She agrees with the other members of the MUD Board that enforcement of the restrictive covenants will ensure sustained property values, as well as a happy experience living in the neighborhood. She experiences a moment of pride when she sees residents enjoying the pools and parks, and taking in the natural beauty that Block House offers. Cecilia considers herself fortunate to live here and serve on the Board, and she takes advantage of the many resources available at every opportunity. You just might see her walking Gus along the trails or along the creek!

Steve Bennett - Vice President   Steve@blockhousemud.com

Over my 28 years of service on the Block House MUD, I have developed a high understanding of the MUD’s responsibilities and legal and physical boundaries. I have learned a lot over the years from the neighboring cities, working with professionals in the industry, and being involved in the development of the community. I have worked with many volunteer and non-profit organizations, Boy Scouts and church groups on projects to enhance the community. I have served on LISD education boards, served many years as ScoutMaster for Boy Scout Troop 171, and am an elder in my church. I am currently Vice President for Capital Area Suburban Exchange (CASE), an organization assisting the Central Texas MUDs with networking, education and special issues. My wife and I have raised two children, Ross and Hannah, here in BHC who are now both college graduates and successful working adults in Austin. My career for over 35 years has been in mechanical engineering as a mechanical systems designer, preconstruction engineer, and commissioning agent. I have enjoyed applying skills used in that type of work to many of the MUD’s issues and projects over the years. My personal goal as a MUD board director is to maintain or improve the quality of life in Block House with the resources available for all residents and their families. I love Block House, I care about it, and am completely vested in keeping it a community where other families can raise their children.

I know that we (the board) may not always make the decisions that suit everyone 100% of the time, yet we are charged with making ethical and wise decisions for the situations or circumstances before us that benefit the community as a whole. The challenge is determining when a poor decision has been made and owning up to it, as well as adjusting when needed. I am proud to be a BHC resident and to represent the district to the best of my abilities.

Byron Koenig - Treasurer   Byron@blockhousemud.com

Byron Koenig is a true “good ol’ boy” Native Texan and deeply devoted family man. Born in Houston, Byron moved to Cedar Park, Texas at the age 10, and later graduated from the original Leander High School. He earned and maintains his professional electrical license and has been practicing the trade for 36+ years. He is currently employed with The University of Texas and consequently bleeds burnt orange. He married his wife Diane in 1998 and moved to Block House Creek Subdivision in 1999 where he still lives today. Their 2 children Audrey and Quinton, attended Block House Creek elementary where students, teachers and administration knew him by name and as “the man to call” because of all the time he spent volunteering at the LISD schools.

Byron was the Scout Master of his son’s Boy Scout troop which led him to work closely with the BH MUD board as well as the BHC OA board. He has spent countless hours volunteering in the community and truly knows the subdivision and its history like the back of his hand.

As our neighborhood grows, Byron is very passionate about preserving our family-first community and works diligently to preserve what has for years been his family’s home.

Rayan Horak - Secretary   Rayan@blockhousemud.com

“I am deeply vested in this community as Block House Creek has always been my home. My parents, still residents of Block House Creek, planted our family’s roots here when, in 1990, they purchased their first home in what was then a rural community. My husband and I were fortunate enough to do the same in 2008. I have seen the tremendous growth and development in the neighborhood and surrounding areas and embrace the diversity the last 20+ years has generated. Now, raising my own children in Block House Creek, I feel as though I can represent the past, present, and future of our wonderful community.”

Rayan has a professional background in management with communication and leadership being the cornerstones of her career. She served for several years on the Board and Recreation Committee of the BHCOA.

Rayan has worked closely with members of surrounding historical organizations and Chambers of Commerce and has also sourced talented musicians from the Block House Creek community for neighborhood events. She greatly enjoys working with the countless volunteers who have helped coordinate, organize, and execute all of the events in our neighborhood and looks forward to serving the community in this new capacity.

Ursula Logan - Assistant Secretary   Ursula@blockhousemud.com

Ursula Logan brings to the Board more than 30 years’ experience in the corporate and political arenas. She is an International Compliance Manager for a global environmental consulting firm, and is certified compliance and ethics professional, CCEP. Ursula and her two young daughters are proud to call Block House Creek home.

Director Logan served on the BHC Owners Association Board of Directors from 2010-2012, and continues to volunteer as chair of the Owners Association’s Maintenance and Safety Committee. Ursula believes that her efforts have brought about positive results in the ongoing improvement of our neighborhood’s appearance and its overall awareness of safety concerns. Her goal is to inspire the kind of change that is beneficial to all, which she believes is possible through efficient communication.

Director Logan has been actively leading the charge against deed restriction violations and believes that consistency is the key to effective enforcement. She continues to work to increase Block Watch and safety awareness through National Night Out, the annual Smoke Out Crime BBQ Cook-Off, Light Up the Night, Lining the Loop on the 4th of July, Crosswalk Safety and other community events.

When asked why she wanted to serve the community as a MUD Director, Director Logan responded, “It is important for our MUD Board to be represented by the makeup of the community. Nearly 60% of the District lives within the boundaries of the Owners Association. Their voices need to be heard at a District level.” In addition, Director Logan is a proponent of working efficiently, working through the due diligence and avoiding getting District projects tied up in political limbo.

Ursula spearheaded the meeting notes concept for the Board to help improve transparency and communication with the community. She would like to see the Board meetings streamed or recorded to allow all residents to watch the meetings from their home. Ursula is also proud of the Tumlinson pool renovation project she led as a pool subcommittee member. One of her proudest moments during the pool project was initiating and leading an Open House for all residents to be fully informed and more involved in the project.

“There is always room for improvement, new ways of working with the residents and continuing to grow to be the best community in Williamson County. I am honored to represent our unique and changing community.”
