Property Tax rate will increase of City of El Paso's residents

Tuesday, August 20, 2013 - 3:13pm

Some City Council members applauded each other today after raising the city's property tax rate by what they call a "nominal amount."

El Paso's elected officials say the tax rate could have been raised a lot higher, but thanks to some slashing about $3.4 million from the budget, the city raised the property tax by 2.2 percent. Which means $28 more for an averaged valued home.

While various department's budgets were decreased, the City decided to increase other departments such as Police and Fire.
