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.

Yes, the trash can is smaller. I feel bad for families that do have a lot of trash and are now going to have to place the trash that does not fit in trash bags placed next to the trash can. Will the trash company pick up trash... More ›

Has anyone else noticed a difference in the trash can sizes. I am sure this is going to cost us big for Gomez getting his way. The city still has not done thier job of communicating with the citizens. They did not put any... More ›
