Bryan City Council Discusses Tax Freeze

By  | 

Bryan's city council has elected to take action on a possible property tax freeze.

If passed the ordinance would freeze property taxes on homes owned by Bryan senior citizens and the disabled.
The item is tentatively scheduled for discussion at a council meeting during the second week of October.

During the meeting, council members will decide whether to allow citizens to file a petition to put the ordinance on the May ballot, whether council will forgo a petition and put it on the ballot themselves, or whether council will pass or deny the ordinance without an election.

If property taxes are frozen for the disabled and the elderly, it will cost the city an estimated $91,000 in 2007, and more than $500,000 by 2009.
