NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING ON TAX INCREASE
The City of New Braunfels will hold a public hearing on a proposal to increase total tax revenues from properties on the tax roll in 1991 by 3.792 percent.
Your individual taxes may increase at a greater or lesser rate, or even decrease, depending on the change in the taxable value of your property in relation to the change in taxable value of all other property.
The public hearing will be held on April 12, 1993, at 7:30 p.m. at New Braunfels Municipal Building Meeting Room D, 424 S. Casten Avenue, New Braunfels, Texas.
FOR the proposal:
AGAINST the proposal: PRESENT and not voting: ABSENT: None.
Mayor Pro-tem Ambrosio Benitez Councilmember Dan Bremer Councilmember Rudy Seidel Councilmember James E. Goodbread, Jr. Councilmember Bill G. Arnold
Councilmember Paul Fraser
Mayor Clinton Brandt
The statement above shows the percentage increase the proposed tax rate represents over the effective tax rate that the unit published on March 28, 1993. lite following table compares taxes on an average home in the taxing unit last year to taxes proposed on the average home this year. Again, your individual taxes may be higher or lower, depending on the taxable value of your property.
Average home value General exemptions available (amount available on the average home, not including senior citizen's or disabled persons exemptions)
Average taxable value
LAST YEAR THIS YEAR $57,530 $57,560
.4100/$ I OO .425368/$ I OO $188.69 $196.02
Under this proposal taxes on the average home would increase by $7.33 or 3.88% compared with last year's taxes. Comparing tax rates without adjusting for changes in property value, the tax rate would increase by $0.01568 per $100 of taxable value or 3.824 percent compared to last year's tax rate. These tax rate figures are not adjusted for changes in the taxable value of property.
