2021 Consumer Confidence Report

The 2021 Consumer Confidence Report tells customers about the City of Sweeny's water system, where our water comes from, and provides information on water quality. The City takes great pride in its water system and works hard to meet or exceed the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) requirements.

Proposed Tax Rate Hearing 9/21/2021

NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING ON TAX INCREASE
A tax rate of $0.747062 per $100 valuation has been proposed by the governing body of CITY OF
SWEENY.

PROPOSED TAX RATE $0.747062 per $100
NO-NEW-REVENUE TAX RATE $0.673262 per $100
VOTER-APPROVAL TAX RATE $0.747062 per $100

The no-new-revenue tax rate is the tax rate for the 2021 tax year that will raise the same amount of property
tax revenue for CITY OF SWEENY from the same properties in both the 2020 tax year and the 2021 tax
year.
The voter-approval rate is the highest tax rate that CITY OF SWEENY may adopt without holding an
election to seek voter approval of the rate.
The proposed tax rate is greater than the no-new-revenue tax rate. This means that CITY OF SWEENY is
proposing to increase property taxes for the 2021 tax year.

A PUBLIC HEARING ON THE PROPOSED TAX RATE WILL BE HELD ON September 21, 2021 AT
6:00 PM AT City Hall at 102 W. Ashley Wilson, Rd., Sweeny, Texas 77480.

The proposed tax rate is not greater than the voter-approval tax rate. As a result, CITY OF SWEENY is not
required to hold an election at which voters may accept or reject the proposed tax rate. However, you may
express your support for or opposition to the proposed tax rate by contacting the members of the City
Council of CITY OF SWEENY at their offices or by attending the public hearing mentioned above.

YOUR TAXES OWED UNDER ANY OF THE RATES MENTIONED ABOVE CAN BE CALCULATED
AS FOLLOWS:
Property tax amount= (tax rate) x (taxable value of your property)/100
FOR the proposal: Sandra Blaine Bill Hayes
Brian Brooks John Rambo
Tim Pettigrew
AGAINST the proposal:
PRESENT and not voting: Mayor Jeff Farley
ABSENT:

The 86th Texas Legislature modified the manner in which the voter-approval tax rate is calculated to limit
the rate of growth of property taxes in the state.
