Central Health holds hearing on 2020 budget

Wednesday, September 11, 2019 by Tai Moses

Today, Central Health will be holding the first of two public hearings on the Fiscal Year 2020 proposed property tax rate. As required by the state tax code, Central Health must hold two public hearings before the board of managers, and then the Travis County Commissioners Court approves the budget and tax rate. According to a press release, “Central Health’s FY2020 proposed budget of over $290 million is largely funded by Travis County property taxes, and will increase funding for health care delivery by 12.4% over this year.” You can get a look at the details of Central Health’s FY 2020 budget and tax rate here. If you would like to speak at the hearing, please arrive by 5:30 p.m. to sign in. Speakers will have three minutes to address the board of managers. The first hearing is today, Sept. 11, at 5:30 p.m., at Central Health, 1111 E. Cesar Chavez St. The second public hearing will be on Wednesday, Sept. 18.
