Decision day is just around the corner, and next Tuesday will be a big day for the people of Bryan.
On Tuesday, voters will decide whether to renew Bryan’s expiring 1/2 percent income tax, which funds street and sewer maintenance and improvements and the Police and Fire Complex.
The Bryan Times reports that according to the Mayor, it’s nothing new. The city has had the tax for the past 28 years.
Since the 1/2 percent tax was first put in place back in 1986, it has generated more than $25.8 million that have been put to use for various city projects.
If approved, he said, the 1/2 percent will be collected until 2023.
Only earned income is taxable. Pensions, social security and dividends are not.
