CEDAR PARK, Texas (KXAN) — The city of Cedar Park says they have now lowered their tax rate for five years in a row, and this year’s rate is the lowest the city has seen in 15 years.
The new 45.750 cents for every $100 of property valuation is one of the lowest property tax rates among other cities in the area, a statement from Cedar Park said.
The rate represents a 1.25 cent decrease from last year’s 47 cents. City Council adopted the new rate at its Thursday regular meeting.
With the new rate, City Council says they passed a structurally-balanced $51.1 million general fund budget for fiscal year 2018, with a theme of “guided growth for a community-centered future.”
Council emphasized the budget featured a commitment to public safety, mobility improvements and an increase in employment opportunities. More than half of the general fund budget goes toward public safety.
