Regular meetings of the Lower Brushy Creek WCID board of directors will be adjusted over the next three months in order to accommodate deadlines set by the county’s tax assessor/collector.
The July meeting will move to 7:30 a.m. Monday, July 26 in the conference room of the Taylor Chamber of Commerce so that directors will have more accurate information regarding tax revenues as they consider the preliminary budget for fiscal Year 2023.
The agenda for that meeting will include possible updates to the district’s election guidelines, the retention of an accounting firm to conduct the FY 2022 audit and possibly releasing easements to TxDOT along FM 1466 in front of Site 32. Site 32 is just west of Hwy 95 near Coupland.
Directors will consider canceling the August meeting and, instead, hold a public hearing on a proposed tax rate for the upcoming year. Voters gave the district authority to levy a 2-cents per $100 valuation property tax in 2018. The current rate is 1.91-cents per $100.
The public tax hearing is set for 7 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 6 at Taylor City Hall in the council chambers.
The regular September meeting will be moved up one week to meet the Sept. 13 deadlines to adopt a tax rate set by the county’s tax assessor. That meeting will b held at 7:30 a.m. Monday, Sept. 12 in the conference room at the Taylor Chamber of Commerce. The final budget for FY 2023 and the final Tax Rate for 2022 will also be considered at that meeting.
