TYLER — The proposed 2019-20 budget for the City of Tyler was presented to the City Council on Wednesday morning. According to the city’s temporary website, the proposal recommends a one-and-a-half-cent increase to the current tax rate of $0.244452 per $100 valuation. Sales Tax will make up 42% percent of the General Fund – which provides public services.
The City is conservatively projecting zero growth in sales tax. Property taxes make up just 31% percent of Tyler’s General Fund revenues. Opportunities for public input on the budget are available for two Council meetings at Tyler City Hall, on Wednesday, August 28 at 9 a.m. and Wednesday, September 11 at 9 a.m. Final adoption of the budget is scheduled for 9 a.m. at the Sept. 25th meeting.
