[ARCHIVED] November City Manager Message

In this month’s edition, I’d like to provide an update on some of the projects and other initiatives happening at City Hall currently. Since the printing of last month’s newsletter, a few changes were made to the budget that I wanted to make you aware of. Those changes include:
• Adopted tax rate of $0.803893, one (1) cent lower than last year
• Two new positions were funded - a Code Enforcement Officer and Part-Time library Aide
• The part-time Kennel Technician position was converted to a full-time position

The budget was adopted on September 8, 2016. If you would like to view the budget in brief or get more information on it, visit our website -

New businesses and expansions completed in town include:
• Williamson County Expo Center Expansion
• Taylor Station on 2nd. St.
• HT Fitness
• Summit Cabinet Groundbreaking
• The Hawt Spot
• Farm 2 Table Deli on 2nd St.

The City has also been the recipient of numerous grants for projects including:
• $125,000 for Robinson Park
• $2.9 Million for Taylor Municipal Airport
• $50,000 for Amy Young Barrier Removal Program
• $49,500 for Hazard Mitigation

Additionally, a grant application for the Downtown Skate Park and Heritage Square improvements was submitted last month to Texas Parks & Wildlife.

I look forward to sharing more exciting news on development and growth in Taylor in the coming months.
