COUNCIL ACTION
Motion by Councilmember Marks with a second by Councilmember Quarles to approve as presented. Motion passes 6-0.  Note: This was a Roll Call/Record Vote.
AGENDA ITEM:
Consider an Ordinance setting the tax rate and levying the Ad Valorem Taxes for the 2019 Tax Year.
BACKGROUND:
The City Council has considered a proposed budget for Fiscal Year 2019-2020 with revenue projections using the proposed tax rate of $0.701554 per $100 valuation, which is a reduction from last year’s tax rate.
FINDINGS:
This Ordinance setting the tax rate for Fiscal Year 2019-2020 conforms to the Property Tax Code. This year’s tax rate will raise more taxes for Maintenance and Operations than last year’s tax rate.
FINANCIAL IMPACT:
The total tax rate required to finance this budget is 70.1554 cents per $100 of valuation, with the Maintenance and Operations portion of 55.016 cents per $100 valuation, and the Interest and Sinking portion reduced from prior fiscal year to 15.1394 cents per $100 valuation. The total tax rate of 70.1554 cents per $100 valuation will provide funding for Maintenance and Operations expenditures, as well as payment for debt obligations.
RECOMMENDATION:
Staff recommends Council approve an ordinance adopting the tax rate with the following language: “I move that the property tax rate be increased by the adoption of a rate of 70.1554 cents per $100 valuation, which is effectively a 6.50 percent increase over the calculated Effective Tax Rate and a decrease in the Ad Valorem Tax Rate used in the prior fiscal year.”
