St. Hedwig tax rate remains stable
ST. HEDWIG -- Property owners here will continue to pay an ad valorem tax rate of 47.9895 cents per $100 of assessed property value. This, after the St. Hedwig City Council voted at its Sept. 6 meeting to leave the rate -- which includes 35.0975 cents for maintenance and operation and 12.892 cents for debt service -- unchanged.
As a result, tax bills will see less than a 0.3 percent increase. According to the Bexar County Appraisal District, the average value of a residence within the city limits rose from $129,457 in 2011 to this year’s $129,813. Taxpayers paid an average of $621.26 in taxes to support the city last year. For 2012, the average tax bill will be $622.97.
The rate will support a fiscal year 2013 budget of $586,950, which is approximately 2.43 percent higher than the current budget of $573,009. The council, following a public hearing at the beginning of the meeting, adopted both the budget and tax rate.
Following the meeting, Mayor Mary Jo Dylla said the council, after meeting in closed session, voted to accept a settlement agreement disposing of the lawsuit filed by the city against D.R. Barr d.b.a. Silver Saddle Arena, Party House, and Robby Vosburg. Dylla could not elaborate on the agreement, as a judge had not yet signed it.
In other business, Dylla said Bexar County will install warning lights at the low-water crossing on Graytown Road at the Martinez Creek. The lights will activate during a flood.
