Knox Proposal to Lower Property Tax Rate Passes City Council

October 18, 2017 -- I was recently reminded by one of my Council colleagues that among our responsibilities on Council is to speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves. So often, it seems, government forgets those who pay the bills – the taxpayers.

Today was a victory for Houston taxpayers. I am proud of my City Council colleagues for joining me this morning in support of my proposal to reduce the City's property tax rate to $0.58421 per $100 valuation, the lowest property tax rate in decades.

The voice of Houston taxpayers was heard loud and clear in City Hall this morning. We will not exceed the voter imposed property tax revenue cap.
