A WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY is in effect for Milam, Robertson, Lee, and Leon Counties from 12am to 12pm THURSDAY. A strong cold front will reach the Brazos Valley by mid-afternoon to early evening TODAY. Mild temperatures are expected to sharply fall as strong, brisk north winds arrive. A scattered rain chance could turn into a scattered, wintry mix between 6am and Noon Thursday. Little-to-no accumulation is expected -- however, caution is urged driving on bridges and overpasses.
The tax rate and the city budget are on the agenda for Bryan City Council Tuesday night.
Two public hearings are set: the first for the proposed budget, while the second will focus on the proposed tax rate.
The city is proposing a combined budget of more than $254 million. That's a $9.1 million--or roughly 3.5 percent--increase over the current budget of more than $245 million.
The proposed tax rate is unchanged.
Council will hear a proposal to keep the tax rate at a little more than $0.6364 for every $100 of property value. That's a city tax bill of $795.50 on a $125,000 home.
But, because of increased property values, that same tax rate is expected to bring the city almost $1 million more than last year.
