The Roy City Council will hold two public hearings this Tuesday, Nov. 12, to discuss the proposed city budget for 2020 and consider a possible property tax rate increase for residents in 2020.

According to the meeting agenda, the city council plans to present a first reading of Ordinance 972, the planned property tax, following a hearing of the public. Initial documents don’t yet show the amount of the proposed increase.

Last year, the city levied $101,399 from taxpayers. Property tax revenues make up about one-fourth of the city’s general fund budget.

According to agenda documents, the council plans on taking action on the matter at a regular meeting later this month.
