Littlefield City Council adopts proposed tax rate

By JOE GONZALES

Tuesday night, the Littlefield City Council met for a regular meeting inside their chambers.

Once again, the council handled a lengthy agenda.

Among the agenda items was the council to consider and approve a proposed tax rate for the 2018-2019 fiscal year budget. Littlefield City Manager asked the council to approve a proposed tax rate.

The tax rate the city used last year, and what they used this year to help develop the proposed budget was $0.757600 per $100 of property valuation. The effective tax rate, which was the theoretical rate used to generate the same revenue as the year before is $0.763500. Grant said the effective rate was higher because the total valuation went down.

The second rate would generate $9,440 more than adopting the same rate as last year.
