Proposed city budget promises good things for residents, businesses

August 6, 2014

Big Spring city officials are proposing an increase in their tax levy for the next fiscal year, but they promise residents will get a good bang for their buck.

During the city council’s annual budget work, City Manager Todd Darden and his staff proposed a budget featuring a tax rate of 86.5043 cents per $100 property valuation, which is the same rate as the expiring budget. Because of a huge jump in property valuations, however, the rate is projected to bring in $826,000 more in revenue than it did last year.
