The City of Mansfield wants to make you aware...

The City of Mansfield wants to make you aware of the 8.46 millage property tax for the City of Mansfield. The renewal tax contributes an estimated $179,775 annually to the budget. This is not a new tax, rather a renewal for the continuation of the level of services provided by the public works, recreation, fire, and police departments.

The millage was previously renewed in 2003 and has continued for years to provide funds to better the overall quality of life for the citizens of Mansfield. If not renewed, the annual budget would be reduced by approximately $179,775. Services affected by the tax renewal include citywide mosquito spraying, bulky item pick-up, police force, drainage funds, departmental employees, and recreation and equipment purchases.

The tax renewal proposition will be included on the November 6 election ballot. The City of Mansfield wants the citizens of the City of Mansfield to be informed.
