MUNDAY—The Munday City Council decided to reverse course and not raise the 2020-2021 property tax rates during its regular meeting last week.
The council had earlier voted to propose a rate of $1.20905 by a 4-1 vote prior to holding a public meeting on the same night. No residents appeared at this meeting, but after some discussions, they opted to go with the non-new revenue, formerly called effective rate of $1.19748.
City Manager David Trevino reported this rate is actually lower than the $1.19907 rate for the previous year.
The council did decide to raise the base water rate by $10, for the first 3,000 gallons, for people living outside the city limits that use the service.
In addition, the council decided to start stricter enforcement of the dog ordinance, asking City Attorney Lina Trevino to propose some amendments to the current ordinance.
To create a safe zone for kids who want to go trick or treating, the council again voted to close S. 7th and S. 9th on Halloween Oct. 31.
“Kids can go elsewhere in the city, but this practice has proven effective the last few years,” added the city manager.
In other business, action on the possibility of adding one-way streets around the Munday schools was tabled while Jason Young was reappointed to the North Central Texas Municipal Water Authority board of directors.
