City Council Approves Final Reading of Ordinances for Rates and Rezoning

Sulphur Springs City Council met Tuesday night in a Special Session to approve the second and final reading of a number or ordinances, some of which had to be approved before October 1, 2018.

The Council approved the tax rate that will not change but will see a slight revenue increase due to higher evaluation of properties in the city. The property values are set by the Hopkins County Tax Appraisal District. They also approved the appropriations ordinance for the city for Fiscal Year 2018-2019. The two ordinances were passed by a vote of 4-2. The two opposed were Councilmen Jimmy Lucas and Norman Sanders.

All other items on the agenda were passed by unanimous vote. Those included rates for water, sewer, and sanitation, authorization of Update Service Credits, a rezoning of property from Single Family to Light Commercial at 1332 South Hillcrest, and rezoning of property at 435 Connally Street from Single Family to Single Family Attached.
