OPINION: ARE THE MARSHALL CITY COMMISSIONERS ABOUT TO VIOLATE ONE OF THEIR OWN ORDINANCES?

opinion180912

By Ron Munden — September 12, 2018

The agenda for the September 13, 2018, City Commission meeting contains these items:

6. ORDINANCES

A. Consider approval of an Ordinance repealing Section 2-12 of Chapter 2, Administration of Ordinances of the City of Marshall, TX, entitled “Annual Sales Tax Appropriation for Streets Projects,” which requires that a certain percentage of the local sales tax be appropriated to maintaining and improving city streets. (Acting City Manager)

B. Consider approval of an Ordinance to adopt the annual budget of the City of Marshall, Texas, for the 2019 fiscal year. (Acting City Manager)

Item A will remove a city requirement that at least 25% of the city sales taxes will be spent on street maintenance. Item B approves the City’s 2019 budget. It is my understanding that the budget does not meet the 25% requirement for street repairs.
