Lewisville City Council will hold its annual budget workshop Aug. 17, roughly two weeks later than expected.

The city chose to delay the meeting to wait on a more compete property tax roll report from the Denton Central Appraisal District, a July 30 release said. The report allows for the city to calculate a property tax rate for the upcoming budget year, the release said.

The meeting, originally scheduled for Aug. 1, will take place before the regularly scheduled council meeting Aug. 17.

The budget workshop is expected to be held via Zoom and is open to the public.

A public hearing for the proposed fiscal year 2020-21 budget and approval of the budget will take place Sept. 14 before a regularly scheduled council meeting.


Another public hearing will be held Sept. 21 on the proposed tax rate and the approval of that tax rate prior to another regularly scheduled council meeting.

More information on the proposed budget for FY 2020-21 as well as all of the adopted budgets since 2008 can be found here.
