city hall

Town-hall meetings for questions and input on the city of Dallas’ 2015 budget start this week.

The $2.81-billion proposed budget calls for restoring some city services and does not seek to cut any services. The property tax rate won’t go up, although the city expects to receive about $74 billion in property taxes because of higher valuations. In 2015, the city expects to earn about $11.2 million more in sales taxes over the previous year. The city also is increasing revenues by hiking the residential sanitation rate by 67 cents.
