The city of Amarillo has provided a link to several resources meant to better inform the public about what the November bond election is all about.
There are breakdowns of how the maximum proposed property tax hike of 20 cents per $100 of taxable property value - phased in over five years - would affect total tax bills. Right now 15 percent of an average residential tax bill goes to the city. The tax increase would bump the percentage paid to the city to 21 percent, an increase of less than $250 for a home with a taxable value of $124,000.
Even more graphic is an interactive map of the city showing the location of the proposed projects and details about them.
There is also a list of voting locations for the November election.
