Annual City Budget, Property Tax Rate Approved
Earlier this month, the NRH City Council approved the annual city budget and adopted a property tax rate of $0.572 per $100 property valuation. The rate is a 1.3 cent reduction from the previous rate of $0.585, making this the third year in a row the property tax rate has decreased.

The budget for FY 2019-2020 is balanced and provides funding to continue the city services residents depend on every day including police, fire and emergency medical services, street, drainage and utility infrastructure, animal control, code compliance, building and health inspections, library services and parks and recreation.

In addition, the proposed budget includes replacement of an ambulance, worn carpeting at the library and aging playground equipment and restrooms at Linda Spurlock Park. It funds the extension of Northeast Parkway, east of Davis Boulevard and the addition of a traffic signal at Northeast and Davis to improve access to the new Smithfield Elementary School campus that is being built by Birdville ISD. It also includes equipment to better coordinate traffic signal timing on Davis Boulevard and Mid Cities Boulevard and $1.3 million for preventive street maintenance projects throughout the city.
