Brazos County commissioners will vote on the county’s proposed budget for the 2020 fiscal year today at its 10 a.m. meeting inside the County Administration Building in Bryan.
The budget proposal calls for an effective increase in the property tax rate of 7.44%. The overall budget, if approved, will rise to $249.58 million from the current budget of $247.03 million.
The fiscal year 2020 proposed budget is balanced at a tax rate of $0.4975 per $100 of valuation. If approved, county taxes for maintenance and operations on a $100,000 home would rise by approximately $15.80, according to the budget proposal, which is available for public viewing on the county’s website.
The tax rate increase would be the county’s first since 2012.
