FY16-17 Budget Approved

Based on Lowest Tax Rate Since the 80's

​A Note from Coppell Mayor Karen Hunt

September 22, 2016

As Mayor of Coppell, there's nothing I love more than sharing great news! Last week your City Council passed the Fiscal Year 2016-2017 (FY16-17) budget and lowered the property tax rate to $0.5795 per $100 valuation, resulting in the lowest tax rate for residents since 1986-1989 when the tax rate was $0.56.

Your City Council and Staff created a financial plan for the upcoming year that maintains the high level of service Coppellians enjoy today while balancing priority projects that continue to make Coppell 

A Family Community for a Lifetime. 

That tag line means so much when you think about the investment the City makes in neighborhood quality of life projects, infrastructure improvements and the phenomenal service level our City provides. We believe the investment in our community today preserves our lifestyle and ensures generations to come will also love living, working and playing in Coppell.

This budget does just that... it allows us to continue doing the good work that makes Coppell a Community of Choice.

The adopted budget provides for the continued redevelopment of the Andy Brown Parks system, the renovation of the Cozby Library, and the construction of Life Safety Park.  Citizens will soon be able to experience the Bold Vision, Big Impact first hand as these facilities open later this year and into 2017. 

Through this budget, the City maintains its commitment to provide high-level services to our citizens with the intent to exceed their expectations. 

The FY16-17 Adopted Budget document is being finalized, but please take a look at the proposed budget information and read more about all the great things we are doing this upcoming year.

Thank you for your support as we work to continuously improve our wonderful community!

Karen Hunt, Mayor
City of Coppell​
