BRYAN, Texas (KBTX) - Bryan city council members got their first look at next year’s budget. Tuesday’s presentation shows the city is expecting to operate with $5.3 million dollars less than originally projected for the 2021 fiscal year.

In terms of revenue, the city is expecting a 2% decrease in sales tax growth. A 1.6% increase is expected in property tax revenues. There are no proposed changes for the property tax rate.

Regarding outside agency funding, the current proposal calls for the city to give the Brazos County Health Department the $478,000 requested by the Health District. Right now, there is zero funding proposed for the Downtown Bryan Association and Texas Reds.
