LUBBOCK, Texas (KCBD) - In the city, a property tax increase could be coming in 2024. The Lubbock city council is discussing a budget proposal for the next fiscal year.

The city is considering a property tax rate increase of nearly one-and-a-half cents. It would also raise more than $12 million in new revenue, with two thirds of that driven by property value growth.

City Manager Jarrett Atkinson projects the average Lubbock homeowner will pay a little more than $1,000 for a home worth $210,000. That means residents would bay an additional $110 in property taxes next year.

The council will vote on the budget in September.
