West U proposes no changes to 2013 tax rate
West University Place’s city council took a unanimous record vote to keep the proposed 2013 tax rate the same as 2012.
The present tax rate is $0.374 per $100 of property value.
If West U were to adopt the effective tax rate of $0.366 per $100, taxes would increase by $84,686 when compared to 2012.
Depending on budget needs, the 2013 tax rate could be the same or lower than 2012’s tax rate.
Council also set two public hearings for residents to discuss the proposed tax rate. The public hearings are scheduled for 6 p.m. Sept. 26 and Sept. 30.
Council also moved their Monday, Sept. 23, meeting to Thursday, Sept. 26, to coincide with the public hearings.
Council member Dick Yehle was absent.
