2014 Fiscal Year Proposed Budget

Notice is hereby given that the City Commission of Texas City will hold a public hearing on Wednesday, Sept. 3, 2014, at 5 p.m. in the Kenneth T. Nunn Room at City Hall, 1801 9th Avenue North, Texas City, Texas.

The purpose of the Public Hearing is to hear citizens' opinions in favor of or in opposition to the City of Texas City's proposed 2014/2015 Fiscal Year Budget.

This budget will raise more total property taxes than last year's budget by $595,403 or 2.643 percent increase, and of that amount $70,865.45 is tax revenue to be raised from new property added to the tax roll this year.

Any citizen wishing to voice his/her opinion in favor of or in opposition to the City's proposed 2014/2015 Fiscal Year Budget is invited to be present and will be heard. Written comments will be accepted and considered on or before the date of the public hearing.

2014 Tax Year Proposed Property Tax Rate

A tax rate of $0.438 per $100 valuation has been proposed for adoption by the governing body of the City of Texas City. This rate exceeds the lower of the effective or rollback tax rate, and state law requires that two public hearings be held by the governing body before adopting the proposed tax rate.

Proposed tax rate: $ 0.438 per $100
Preceding year's tax rate: $0.453 per $100
Effective tax rate: $0.407234 per $100
Rollback tax rate: $0.439450 per $100

The effective tax rate is the total tax rate needed to raise the same amount of property tax revenue for the City of Texas City from the same properties in both the 2013 tax year and and the 2014 tax year.

The rollback tax rate is the highest tax rate that the City of Texas City may adopt before voters are entitled to petition for an election to limit the rate that may be approved to the rollback rate.

Your taxes owed under any of the above rates can be calculated as follows:
property tax amount = ( rate ) x ( taxable value of your property ) / 100

Hometown Heroes Banner Program

American Legion logo

American Legion Texas City Post 89 proudly presents the Hometown Heroes Banner Program, a tribute to all Veterans who have served or now serving our country in a branch of the military. This program is a partnership between the American Legion Texas City Post 89 and the City of Texas City, Texas.

Each individual banner will be unique and honor specific veterans with their picture, branch of service, era of service, and their sponsor printed on both sides. These Hometown Heroes Banners will be mounted on street lights and any special area the City chooses. The program is non-political and non-partisan. It is purely a living memorial to those Veterans who have served our country or currently serving. Veterans are our Hometown Heroes!

To sponsor a banner, download the form to get started.
