St. Hedwig tax rate remains unchanged
ST. HEDWIG -- For the eighth consecutive year, the St. Hedwig City Council has adopted an ad valorem tax rate of 47.9895 cents per $100 of taxable property value. The decision came during a special council meeting held Aug. 29.
City Secretary Barbara Pawelek said after the meeting that the rate includes 35.0975 cents being levied for maintenance and operation, with the remaining 12.8920 being levied for debt service.
The average property-tax bill will see an approximately 1.62 percent increase under the new rate. According to the Bexar County Appraisal District, residential properties in the city limits of St. Hedwig were certified with an average taxable value of $131,070. Therefore, taxpayers will pay an average bill of $629. Last year, when the average taxable value of a residential property was $128,979, the average tax bill was $618.96.
The tax rate will support a municipal budget of $629,160 for the 2014 fiscal year, which also was adopted during the meeting.
In other business, the council voted to solicit requests for qualifications from engineers to assist the city with formulating a plan to address its road repair needs.
