FLORESVILLE -- Another morning meeting of the Floresville City Council has ended with a reduction in the city’s tax rate. The 2-1 vote marks the end of Floresville’s 32.27-cent tax rate, which was first adopted in 1999.

Following a tense discussion during a Sept. 27 meeting that began at 10 a.m., councilmen John W. Guerrero and Mario Morones voted in favor of setting Floresville’s fiscal year 2013 ad valorem tax rate at 31.78 cents per $100 of assessed property value. This rate is the effective tax rate, as calculated by the Wilson County Appraisal District.

Councilman Sherry Martinez Castillo voted no, while councilmen Johnnie R. Gomez and Jesse Christopher Flores were not present.

Based upon the new rate, the average tax bill could decrease by approximately $4.82.
