be two city council seats along with two propositions.
One proposition is voting on a measure to increase the street maintenance sales tax by
1/8th of one percent. This increase will be for city street maintenance and repair.
The second proposition is voting on a measure to increase the economic development sales tax by 1/8th of one percent. This increase will provide the Kosse Economic Development more funds to increase economic development projects in the City of Kosse. If the propositions pass, the sales tax rate will be 8.25%, which is consistent
with Groesbeck and Mexia and most cities in Texas.
This will result in a funding increase of approximately $600 per month each to street improvements to the EDC. An example of the impact of the increase is: You make a purchase of $100. With sales tax you pay $108.00 at checkout. Under the new rate you would pay $108.25 at the register, 25 cents more than before.
Election Day is May 4th at the Kosse Community Center. You can vote early through April 30th at Kosse City Hall during City office hours.
