The Village of Tiki Island Board of Aldermen on Tuesday voted unanimously to repay an overpayment of $10,469 in sales and use taxes. A business had paid the excess taxes in error.
The overpayment will be repaid over a four year period in 48 monthly installments, with no fees or interest to the city. (Correct)
The village board voted to cast ballots in favor of electing Pat Norriss and Greg Ingham to the Texas Municipal League Intergovernmental Risk Pool Board of Trustees.
The village board voted to approve nominations as presented by the Galveston County Commissioners Court for appointment to the Galveston County United Board of Health.
The appointments include John Konikowski, Steven Leach, Bernard Milstein, Michael Ehart, Keith Casey and Scott Johnson.
The village board held a public hearing on the village’s proposed 2012 property tax rate of $0.278301 per $100 valuation. No members of the public came forward to speak on the proposed tax rate.
The proposed amount is equal to the village’s rollback tax rate. Adopting a tax rate exceeding the rollback rate triggers a tax election to receive voter approval for the increase in taxes.
The village’s effective maintenance and operations tax rate for 2012 is $0.222003 per $100 valuation. The proposed tax rate includes $0.038538 per $100 valuation designated for payment on the city’s bonded indebtedness, and $0.239763 per $100 valuation designated for maintenance and operations of the city. A lower rate than the proposed tax rate may be considered for adoption by the city council.
The village board will meet on September 25 for an additional budget workshop, and meet on October 1 to consider adoption of the budget.
All items were approved. All votes were unanimous with Alderman Ron Simons absent. Agenda
