The Floresville City Council has proposed an ad valorem tax rate of 46.33 cents per $100 of property value, voting 3-1 in favor of the rate at its Aug. 15 special meeting.

The rate, if approved, would result in a 14.55-cent -- almost 46 percent -- increase over the current 31.78-cent rate.

Prior to formally adopting a tax rate, the council will hold two public hearings. They are set for 7 p.m. on Aug. 28 and Sept. 5.

Things are in this situation because voters put people in positions in which they are not qualified to handle. Basicly they are voted in by popularity vote instead of having the education and experience to do the job. This town ... More ›
