FLORESVILLE -- The Floresville Independent School District board of trustees has approved its proposed budget and tax rate, which is down from last year’s rate. This action was taken during an Aug. 28 special meeting and public hearing.
Although five members of the public were in attendance, no one spoke during the public hearing.
Members of the board approved the recommended tax rate of $1.49 per $100 of taxable value, with $1.04 for maintenance and operations, and 45 cents for debt service. The new rate reflects a small decrease, slightly more than 2.5 cents, from last year’s rate.
Though the new rate is lower than previous years, taxpayers may see an increase in their average tax bill. According to information from the Wilson County Appraisal District, the average taxable value of a residence in the district is $125,724, bringing the average tax bill to $1,873.29, an increase of $11.01 from last year. The average taxable value of homes in the district last year was $122,792, with a tax bill of $1,861.28.
The budget of $28,013,000 as proposed Aug. 6 also was approved.
The meeting lasted a total of 12 minutes, with the budget and tax rate the main topics of the agenda.
In attendance: Board President Ryan Bippert; trustees John Raabe, Rachel Peña, Bill Meuth, and Neysa Choate; Interim Superintendent Sherri Bays; Superintendent’s Secretary Kim Cathey; Assistant Superintendent of Finance Mike McSwain.
