ELMENDORF -- Property owners here will continue to pay an ad valorem tax rate of 47.7261 cents per $100 of taxable property value to finance the city’s day-to-day operations. The Elmendorf City Council voted Sept. 12 to maintain the same tax rate for the 2014 fiscal year.

The tax rate includes 31.4776 cents per $100 being levied for maintenance and operation. The remaining 16.2485 cents is being collected for the payment of debt service.

According to the Bexar County Appraisal District, the average taxable value of a residence in Elmendorf was certified at $71,753. Therefore, property-tax bills will average $342.45 this year, compared to the previous year’s $333.30.

The tax rate will help to support the city’s 2013-14 budget of $1,370,099.84, which the council also approved during the meeting. The budget allows for a surplus of $27,813.44.

City Secretary Roxanne De Leon said after the meeting that the budget includes 3 percent across-the-board salary increases for six of the city’s seven paid employees. A water operator, she said, was promoted to that position after a recent vacancy, so he will not receive a salary increase this year.

Also in the budget is a second full-time officer to join Chief Michael Pimentel and Sgt. David Rios at the Elmendorf Police Department. De Leon said the council voted to hire former reserve Officer Stephen Johnson, who also will assist the city with maintenance of its information technology infrastructure. Johnson will begin working for the city in October.

The council also:

•Voted to reject a proposal by Mayor Manuel Decena for elected officials to be paid a monthly stipend for their service. Councilmen Linda Peña Ortiz, Thomas Hicks, and Richard Rodriguez opposed the proposal.

•Tabled discussion of the city’s proposed zoning ordinance, as a legal notice related to a related public hearing had the wrong date. The notice will be republished at a later date.

•Discussed a proposal to introduce an ordinance related to the regulation of businesses that offer payday loans.

•Voted to approve a property-tax freeze for residents who either are disabled or older than age 65, for which residents can apply at Elmendorf City Hall.

While the issue was not discussed during the meeting, City Administrator Cody Dailey Dailey said City Hall is experiencing “growing pains” related to its Internet system. A recent mistake has left the new building on F.M. 327 without service for at least a week.

The city recently obtained its own Internet domain and work is under way to establish new email accounts.
