BRENHAM CITY COUNCIL TO HOLD HEARING ON BUDGET, TAX RATE MONDAY

  

The Brenham City Council will hold a special meeting Monday morning to hold hearing on its budget for the new fiscal year.

Councilmembers are proposing a budget that will raise approximately $268,777 more in property taxes than last year’s budget, a 4.15 percent increase.

Of that amount, just over $84,000 is revenue from estimated new property added to the tax roll this year.

In addition, the council will look to ratify the property tax increase reflected in the budget for the fiscal year, beginning October 1st.

The council will also issue the first official reading of the proposed tax rate of $0.5170 per $100.  The rate is scheduled for adoption at the council’s meeting on Thursday, September 20.

The rate will remain the same as last year’s, but will bring in additional revenues because of higher property values.  Chief Financial Officer Carolyn Miller said at a previous meeting that the increase in property taxes will cover the addition of several full-time public safety positions.

The council will meet Monday at 8:30 a.m., at City Hall.
