Not a Revenue Problem

The city has taken in plenty of money.

  • Since 2016, property tax revenue in the general fund  increased by 28%. 
  • Since 2016, Council raised property tax rates by 18%. The city-wide HCAD appraisal increase of 23% over the last four years compounded the tax burden on property owners. 
  • After 2016, Bonds for Better Bellaire kicked in, providing new money for streets and drainage and new city builditngs.
