The Alvin Community College Board of Regents voted to reduce the property tax rate for the second year in a row during their meeting on August 17.

The board unanimously approved a tax rate of 18.07 cents per $100 of appraised property value. The board approved the effective rate which will generate the same level of property tax revenue as the previous year not including revenue from new construction.

The rate will take effect in September. It is more than a penny less than last year's rate of  19.17 cents and two cents less than the 20.04 cent tax rate in 2015-16.

The 2017-18 Maintenance and Operations rate is 16.36 cents while the rate for voter-approved debt is 1.71 cents.
