Public meeting set for proposed FISD budget, tax rate

by | Aug 12, 2021 | Latest

Farmersville ISD will hold a public meeting at 6 p.m. Aug. 23 to hear public comments on the 2021-22 proposed budget and tax rate for the 2021-22 fiscal year.

The proposed tax rate com­prised of a Maintenance and Operations (“M&O”) compo­nent and an Interest & Sink­ing Fund (“I&S”) component would total $1.353300 per $100 valuation.

The combined 2020-21 rate is $1.143000.

The M&O portion is pro­posed to be $0.960300 ver­sus a rate of $1.001900 for the 2020-21 fiscal year. The I&S rate is proposed to be $0.393000 versus $0.141100 for 2020-21 FY.

The I&S portion produces tax revenue that is used to pay for bonded indebtedness on construction and/or equipment.

The majority of the pro­posed increase is attributable to the passage of the May 2021 bond election.

For the average home in FISD with a taxable value of $214,981 the proposed rate would generate annual prop­erty taxes of $2,909.34.

Last year’s average tax levy on a home in FISD was $2,231.27 based on an average taxable valuation of $195,212.

At the meeting, the district will discuss the proposed bud­get and can adopt the proposed tax rate as well.

The complete Public Notice for the meeting is on page 5A of this edition of The Farmer­sville Times.

The meeting will be held at Farmersville High School, 409 Hwy 78N, Farmersville. The public is invited to participate.
