City of Rosenberg City Council Adopts Fiscal Year 2023-2024 Budget and Tax Rate

Rosenberg City Council has adopted the budget and tax rate for the 2023-2024 fiscal year. The budget was adopted during a special meeting on Tuesday, Sept. 12. At that same meeting, the proposed property tax rate of $0.35 did not receive enough votes as required by state law to adopt a tax rate above the “No New Revenue” rate. Therefore, the “No New Revenue” rate of $0.342364 was adopted by ordinance at the Sept. 19 City Council Meeting.


The FY2024 budget, which was formally submitted to City Council on Aug. 1, 2023, and discussed at numerous Council meetings and workshops, was approved in the total amount of $101,728,442. The new property tax rate is $0.342364 per $100 valuation; a $0.012636 or 3.56% decrease from the previous year’s tax rate of $0.355 and the 11th consecutive year the tax rate has been lowered.


Key highlights of the budget, which will go into effect Oct. 1, 2023, include:

  • Funds 4 new full-time positions; 1 new part-time position
  • Funds 8 Supplemental Budget Requests including: technology updates, license plate readers, patrol vehicles and civic center improvements
