Seabrook City Council
by Garrett Bryce
Wednesday, September 06, 2017

Seabrook City Council on Tuesday voted unanimously to temporarily suspend building and permit fees for residential and commercial structures in response to damages caused by Hurricane Harvey.

The city council voted unanimously to terminate the city’s curfew, which was enacted following Hurricane Harvey’s impact.

The city council voted unanimously to renew a contract with the Bay Area Houston Economic Partnership for economic development services for the Seabrook Economic Development Corporation.

The renewal is for a three-year term, in an amount not to exceed $20,000 per year.

The city council voted unanimously to adopt the city’s FY2018 Budget.

The city council voted unanimously to propose a property tax rate of $0.574911 per $100 valuation.

The rate does not exceed the effective tax rate, which would be the rate the city would levy to receive revenues at the same amount as the previous year based on existing property values.

Of the total tax rate, revenues from $0.419405 per $100 valuation will be used for operation and maintenance of the city, while revenues from the remaining $0.155506 per $100 valuation will be dedicated to payments on the city’s bonded indebtedness. (Correct)

The city council took no action resulting from executive session discussions regarding emergency operations.

All other items were approved by unanimous vote. All members were present. Agenda
