Tax Increase Proposed in Bowie

Residents in Bowie could see a tax hike in 2015.

During a city council meeting on Tuesday, August 4th, 2015, council members talked about increasing the tax rate to 0.4945.  Almost all of the council members voted in favor of the increase.

This comes as residents could face another increase if they vote to make the community a health district.

State law requires the city to hold two public hearings on the issue.  Those hearings will be held on August 18th, 2015 and September 1st, 2015.
