Proposed budget due hearing
City holds tight on tax rate
Port Aransas city officials are
proposing to hold the tax rate to 47-
ccnts on a budget that is $ 11,009 over
last year’s budget.
A public hearing on the pro-
posed budget has been set for 7 p.m.
Thursday, Aug. 31, at city hall.
The tax rate has held at 47-cents
per S100 valuation since the 1984-85
fiscal year while net property valu-
ations have fallen from a high in 1987
of $308,822,674 to a total of
$292,065,465 in 1988. This year the
net valuation is $283,812,783.
City Manager Gordon Beck, in
a cover letter to the council that ac-
companied the final draft of the pro-
posed budget, said the budget “re-
flects a continuation of efforts to
maintain an adequate level of serv-
ices, continue the sirect improvement
program by seal coaling recently re-
constructed streets, initialing construc-
tion of Roberts Point Park and estab-
lishing an Economic Development
Fund” from which the council can
appropriate funds for specific proj-
Among those special projects
that are expected to draw attention arc
the possibility of annexation south of
the city, the start of cruise ship opera-
tions, development of a municipal
gold course, and completion of
Roberts Point Park which will be
funded in part by a $750,000 match-
ing funds grant from the Texas Parks
and Wildlife Dept.
About 51 percent of the general
fund is for capital improvements and
equipment, $89,244 of which is for
the seal coating program, and
$1,436,123 is for Roberts Point Park.
The general fund represents an
11.5 percent increase over expendi-
tures made last fiscal year.
Beck said substantial increases
have been experienced in health in-
surance (40 percent), workers com-
pensation insurance, and merit in-
creases. The budget includes increases
in supplies and services and purchase
of capital equipment.
Beck offered a summary expla-
nation of more significant changes in
Among his notations were an
8.78 percent inu eu.se in the cost of the
garbage collection contract with
Browning Perris Industries (BFi). An
increase in collection rales effective
with the new budgeton Oct 1 will help
offset those increases. (Sec story else-
