City Council Reviews 2018-2019 Budget; Passes on Tax Revenue Increase at This Time

No Sulphur Springs City Council public hearing is planned for a tax revenue increase based on property values following the vote of council Tuesday night in a special session. The council heard the proposed budget but will now face a budget with $32,000 in revenue cut due to their vote.

Three members of council were not present at the time of the vote Tuesday night. Council members Doug Moore, Erica Armstrong and Emily Glass were not present. Armstrong and Glass had been present for much of the review of budgeted items but were not present during the vote due to other obligations which took them away from the meeting. Council members Jimmy Lucas and Norman Sanders voted against placing the tax revenue increase on the September council agenda and no public hearing will be set as a result. Council members Freddy Taylor and John Sellers voted for the motion. A meeting set for next Tuesday night to appoint a City Charter Review Committee will allow for further discussion if the subject is place on the agenda.

During the meeting, the council discussed the 2018-2019 budget. The number of full time and part time employees in each department was noted as were specific expenses. City Manager Marc Maxwell noted that electrical rates for the city will be lower this next year following a negotiated rate change.
