The Central Health Budget: Get Involved

Central Health values public input to ensure its strategic priorities and budget align with the health care needs of our community. Our budget engagement process for FY 2021 includes the following activities.

NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING ON TAX INCREASE

PROPOSED TAX RATE $0.110306 per $100
NO-NEW-REVENUE TAX RATE $0.102271 per $100
VOTER-APPROVAL TAX RATE $0.111435  per $100

 

The no-new-revenue tax rate is the tax rate for the 2020 tax year that will raise the same amount of property tax revenue for the Travis County Healthcare District d/b/a Central Health from the same properties in both the 2019 tax year and the 2020 tax year.

The voter-approval tax rate is the highest tax rate that the Travis County Healthcare District d/b/a Central Health may adopt without holding an election to seek voter approval of the rate.

The proposed tax rate is greater than the no-new-revenue tax rate. This means that the Travis County Healthcare District d/b/a Central Health is proposing to increase property taxes for the 2020 tax year.

A PUBLIC HEARING ON THE PROPOSED TAX RATE WILL BE HELD ON WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 9, 2020 AT 5:30 p.m. at the Central Health Administrative Offices, 1111 E Cesar Chavez St, Austin, TX 78702.

This hearing will be conducted remotely by videoconference/telephonically due to the Governor’s disaster declaration.  Members of the public are encouraged to observe and participate in the public hearing by using the meeting link and password listed below:

Members of the public may also listen and participate in the public hearing by telephone only. To join by telephone, dial (888) 501-0031 and enter the following information when prompted:

The proposed tax rate is not greater than the voter-approval tax rate.

However, you may express your support for or opposition to the proposed tax rate by contacting the members of the Travis County Healthcare District d/b/a Central Health Board of Managers at their offices or by attending the public hearing mentioned above.

YOUR TAXES OWED UNDER ANY OF THE TAX RATES MENTIONED ABOVE CAN BE CALCULATED AS FOLLOWS:
