Over the last several months, area city and school district officials have held extensive workshops and discussions leading up to final votes on their respective entities’ budgets and tax rates by the end of September.

For the city of Hutto, issuing bonds for road and water and wastewater projects is a top expense to expand and improve services in the community, Hutto Chief Financial Officer Angie Rios said.

Money out

The city aims to stay fiscally conservative and not draw down its reserves balance, Rios said. Some of it's biggest expenses include personnel and capital projects for road water-related work.

The city's general fund expenditures increased by 71% from $61.1 million to $104.5 million in fiscal year 2022-23.

Money in

The city is anticipating $2.1 million in additional property tax revenue from new property added to the tax roll this year.
