Jackson offers frugal budget: Touts balance, no tax hike

By BREYANA SEGURA

Pearsall City Manager Charles Jackson presented a balanced 2018-19 budget to councilors Thursday, August 30, noting that he has left the city’s tax rate unchanged.

The property tax rate remains the same as the 2017-18 rate of .89 cents per $100 of property value, under Jackson’s proposal. The city manager said public hearings are required due to an increase in sales tax from 2016 to 2017, making the proposed tax rate .009 cents higher than the effective rate.
