LV tax rate remains same

Special to the PRESS

The property tax rate in Laguna Vista will likely remain unchanged for the coming fiscal year, even with the budgeted $1.5 mil­lion in quality of life im­provements planned for this community in 2011-2012.

The property ad valorem tax rate is expected to re­main at 29.3 cents per $100 assessed valuation, result­ing from action taken by the Laguna Vista City Council at an Aug. 20 special meet­ing, where officials voted to recommend that rate for adoption. Included is the debt rate of $0.046689 is for the $1.5 million issu­ance of Certificates of Ob­ligation that will fund the improvements, City Man­ager Rolando Vela said.

The rate was proposed at the meeting, with Mayor Susie Houston and Council Members Steve Muschen­heim, Leti Keplinger and Michael Carter voting for the proposal. Absent were Board members Bill Schni­er, Rita Garcia and Paul Villas.
