The City Council and City Administration understand that property appraisals are rising in North Texas and we are continuing to decrease the Property Tax Rate to ease the tax burden on residents.  The City also has the responsibility to maintain its infrastructure and to continue to improve the quality of life for its citizens.  Replacement of water lines, pump stations, and other related water system infrastructure is a high priority.  Improving our streets and parks is essential to our quality of life.  Please understand that we work for you and your interests.  We are always open to constructive suggestions from our citizens.
