FIRST PUBLIC HEARING ON BRENHAM TAX RATE WEDNESDAY AT CITY HALL

  

The Brenham City Council will hold a public hearing Wednesday on the city’s proposed tax rate for the new fiscal year.

This is the first of two public hearings on the tax rate, set at 51.4 cents per $100 valuation.  The rate is slightly lower than last year’s rate of 51.7 cents per $100.

The council approved the new rate at its meeting on August 1st.  The rate is made up of a maintenance and operations rate of 32 cents, the same as last year, and an interest and sinking rate of 19.4 cents, reduced from 19.7 cents a year ago.

While the tax rate is lower on paper, many Brenham homeowners will still experience higher taxes due to higher property values.

The council will meet Wednesday at noon, at City Hall.
