Forney Council Prepares to Increase Property Taxes along with Water & Sewer Rates

The Forney City Council has six public hearings scheduled as part of their Tuesday night August 21, 2018 council meeting, and two of these hearings pertain to a increase in property tax as described in the proposed 2018-2019 FY Operating Budget.

Reportedly “this budget will raise more total property taxes than last year's budget by $1,023,068 or 12.10% and of that $540,705 is tax revenue to be raised from new property added to the tax roll this year.” A separate public hearing is scheduled to discuss “a proposal to increase total tax revenues from properties on the tax roll in the preceding tax year by 2.49%.”

The meetings of the Forney City Council are freely open to the public and available for internet viewing at
