Currently, money pulled into the city of Jersey Village through its 2% local sales tax is split into three pots: Half of it goes to the general fund, one quarter goes to a crime control and prevention district, and one quarter goes to a property tax relief fund. If approved by voters, the portion going to property tax relief would be redirected to the re fund. In 2019, the amount of sales tax revenue that went to the property tax reduction fund was about $1.9 million, a gure that informed the spending plan for the proposed re district. A virtual public hearing to gather feedback on the draft budget will take place at 7 p.m. Feb. 8.
