ESD 6 proposes lower tax rate for rural Marble Falls

By Alexandria Randolph

The Board of Emergency Services District (ESD) 6 announced Monday that a reduced tax rate has been proposed for the 2014-2015 fiscal year.

The ad valorem tax rate will affect those living in the district’s area, which roughly encompasses the rural area surrounding Marble Falls, excluding the city’s extraterritorial jurisdiction.

ESD 6 supports the Marble Falls Area Volunteer Fire Department.

The board proposed a rate of .0835 per $100 valuation, amounting to about $83.50 for a $100,000 property. This is slightly less than the rate of .08611 for the 2013-2014 fiscal year.

ESD 6 Board Treasurer Herb Holloway said that property valuation for the ESD’s taxable area went from $259 million in 2013 to $269 million in 2014.
