Beaumont council to vote on hearings linked to proposed tax rate increase

BEAUMONT - The price of progress in Beaumont could be five cents more per $100 valuation.

City Council is scheduled to vote Tuesday on setting public hearings on a proposed tax rate of 69 cents for every $100 of a home's value. That would be a five cent increase and 4 1/2 cents more than the effective tax rate--the rate needed to produce the same amount of tax revenue. The increase would help pay for a number of city projects, including road improvement projects.

The city plans public hearings on the proposed increase. One hearing would be August 27 and the other September 10. Both would begin at 1:30 p.m. in council chambers.
