Missouri City City Council met Wednesday and set the limit for a maximum proposed tax rate of $0.63 per $100 valuation, meaning Council’s official proposed tax rate, which has yet to be determined, cannot exceed $0.63 per $100 valuation.

The decision was a 6-to-0 vote with Council Member Yolanda Ford absent.

The city manager is required to submit to council a formal proposed budget on or before Sept. 1, and council members will review and revise the budget before presenting it to the public for public hearings, according to Missouri City’s city charter.

Two public hearings regarding the tax rate and the potential budget for fiscal year 2018-19 is scheduled to take place on Sept. 13 and Sept. 17, during which residents can voice comments and concerns.
