Seabrook City Council
by Garrett Bryce
Wednesday, September 05, 2012
Seabrook City Council on Tuesday discussed the city’s FY2013 Budget and tax rate, with discussions ending in scheduling a special meeting on September 11 to further review the budget and to consider proposing a tax rate.
The council will decide whether to propose a tax increase, or to consider adoption of the city’s effective property tax rate of $0.649642 per $100 valuation. Adoption of the effective rate would allow Seabrook to draw operating revenues equal to that of FY2012, approximately $3.5 million.
The 2011 tax rate was $0.649978 per $100 valuation. The city’s rollback rate for this year is $0.730458 per $100 valuation. Adoption of a rate exceeding the rollback rate requires voter approval through a tax election.
The city council voted unanimously to allocate hotel occupancy tax funds from the FY2012 and FY2013 budgets in an amount not to exceed $45,000 for construction and installation of directional signs for attractions and parks.
The city council voted unanimously to amend the city’s Zoning Ordinance to add “Tobacco Related Uses” as a permitted use within medium-to-heavy commercial and light industrial districts.
