It appears taxes in Bryan won't be going up after all. After discussing the proposed penny hike, the council voted Tuesday night to move forward with the same rate as last year: $.6364.
Staff had recommended raising the rate one cent which would have been Bryan's first tax rate increase in seven years.
The vote doesn't seal the deal though. It just means this will be the rate used at upcoming public hearings and the budget. Once the budget is approved in September, the rate becomes final.
