The $0.572-cent tax rate will generate $1,939,300 or 6.1% more in revenue from property taxes for FY 2019-20 compared to FY 18-19. Of that amount, $462,347 is tax revenue generated from newly constructed properties added to the tax roll this year. The additional funding will help city departments keep up with growth, increasing costs and increasing demands on services. It also offsets the reduction of around $500,000 in fees that the city previously collected each year from red light cameras and telephone service providers. Both of those programs were cut by the Texas Legislature.
