  1. Don’t get your hopes up high citizen. Citizens don’t have a choice to raise taxes like government to make up for lost income. I hope government dies not raise taxes on us since we are suffering more than they are who have a guaranteed paycheck.

  2. That is terrible a 2.3 percent decrease for sales tax for Brenham compared to last June. This is devastating news. I hope the city manager team can handle this decrease with out raising our taxes. My budget has fallen 35 percent and I had to sell my car and buy a used older car to give up my car payment.
