WOODSBORO – The Woodsboro City Council approved a proposed 2014 tax rate of 73.9 cents per $100 of property value Tuesday, Aug. 5.

The rate is the effective tax rate, the rate that will generate the same property tax revenue as the 2013 rate, which was 73.5 cents per $100 of property value.

The proposed rate would generate $369.80 (not including any exemptions) on a home valued at $50,000, which is about $2 higher than the current rate.

The 2014 rollback rate was 79.8 cents per $100 of property value.

The council also approved discounts for early payment of property taxes.

If paid in October, a 3 percent discount is assessed. If paid in November, 2 percent, and in December, 1 percent.

The council also approved split payments of taxes owed.

In a split vote, the council approved safety boots for the town’s employees.

A cap of $250 per person was set. Boots are to last two years.

Following a closed session to review employees completing their 90-day probationary period, the council approved a $1 raise for each.

Those employees included Raquel Flores, Bryan Gonzales and Rene Ramirez.

Following a second closed session with the city’s attorney Donald Kubicek, the council took no action.

Also, the council set a special meeting Thursday, Aug. 14, to consider a code enforcer.
