The City Council ordered a general election for May 4. On the ballot will
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 most areas 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.
