City Council to Conduct Public Hearing on Tax Increase

A special meeting of the Sulphur Springs City Council will be held at 12:00 p.m. on Friday, August 19, 2016 in the Council Room at 201 North Davis.  The following items will be discussed:

  1. Pledge and invocation.
  1. Conduct a Public Hearing for the proposed tax increase.
  1. Adjourn.

The proposed tax increase is not an increase in the tax rate, which will remain at 44-cents per $100 of property value. However, property values in the city have increased in 2016 and additional revenues will be received from the higher values. The hearing is required by law due to the increase in revenue created by the higher values.
