Big Spring City Council Approves First Reading of Proposed Tax Rate

BIG SPRING, TX (KWES) -

The new, proposed tax rate was the highlight of Tuesday night's Big Spring City Council meeting.

The proposed tax rate is a few cents less than the current rate at 77 cents, but will bring in slightly more revenue for the city.

At the council meeting, one person spoke out against it and another said the rate should stay the same.

In the end, the council unanimously voted to approve the first reading.

There will be a final vote on the item on Monday, September 21st.

The council also discussed the city's budget and approved various pay scales for employees and new water rates that include a slight pass through increase by the Colorado River Municipal Water District.
