Council Approves Resolution Proposing 2010 Tax Rate Increase
During its Monday night meeting, West U City Council approved a resolution proposing a tax rate increase for 2010 and scheduled public hearings to discuss the tax increase.
Council is required by the Texas Property Tax Code to record a vote and schedule two public hearings if the city raises taxes.
The proposed property tax rate for 2010 is $.38005 per $100 valuation. The tax rate that is adopted by council could be lower than the proposed rate.
Last year’s total tax rate was $.35875 per $100 valuation.
Council will hold its first public hearing for the proposed tax increase on Oct. 11 at 6:30 p.m. in the council chambers.
The second public hearing will be held on Oct. 18 at 6:30 p.m.
Council will adopt a budget in October and then adopt a tax rate that supports the approved budget.
