[ARCHIVED] Notice of Meeting to Vote on Tax Rate

Public meeting notice

A tax rate of $0.465526 per $100 valuation has been proposed by the governing body of the City of League City.

Proposed Tax Rate...$0.465526 per $100
No-New-Revenue Tax Rate...$0.475526 per $100
Voter-Approval Tax Rate...$0.579017 per $100

The no-new-revenue tax rate is the tax rate for the 2021 tax year that will raise the same amount of property tax revenue for the City of League City from the same properties in both the 2020 tax year and the 2021 tax year. The voter-approval rate is the highest tax rate that the City of League City may adopt without holding an election to seek voter approval of the rate.

The proposed tax rate is not greater than the no-new-revenue tax rate. This means that the City of League City is not proposing to increase property taxes for the 2021 tax year.

A public meeting to vote on the proposed tax rate will be held on September 14, 2021 at 6:00 pm at Johnnie Arolfo Civic Center, 400 West Walker Street, League City, Texas.

The proposed tax rate is also not greater than the voter-approval tax rate. As a result, the City of League City is not required to hold an election at which voters may accept or reject the proposed tax rate. However, you may express your support for or opposition to the proposed tax rate by contacting the members of the City Council of the City of League City at their offices or by attending the public meeting mentioned above.

Your Taxes Owed Under Any of The Rates Mentioned Above Can Be Calculated As Follows: Property Tax Amount= (Tax Rate) X (Taxable Value Of Your Property)/100

FOR the proposal:

  • Chad Tressler
  • Hank Dugie
  • Andy Mann    
  • Justin Hicks
  • John Bowen 

AGAINST the proposal:

  • Mayor Pat Hallisey
  • Larry Millican

The 86th Texas Legislature modified the manner in which the voter-approval tax rate is calculated to limit the rate of growth of property taxes in the state.
