Slatonite GM

The City of Slaton Commissioners conducted two public hearings for the proposed operating budget fiscal year ending 2024 and the 2023 property tax Monday evening (Aug. 28) during a special meeting at City Hall.

The first hearing for the budget opened at 6:36 p.m. City Manager Wade Willson said nothing had changed with the budget and still was comfortable with it.

Commissioners adopted the first reading of the proposed operating budget and ratified the property tax increase reflected in the budget.

The budget will raise more property taxes than last year’s budget by $108,710.54, or 7.54 percent and of that amount, $9,201.56 is revenue to be raised from new property added to the tax roll this year.
