Each year, Copper Canyon follows a standard budget development process. It includes an update of revenue projections that are based upon historical trends and changes in our resources. The mayor, council, and staff hold a workshop to discuss details of revenues, expenditures, and projects for the upcoming year. The budget is presented at Public Hearings held in August and September each year for public input.
This year, housing permits have been coming in at a steady rate. We expect this trend to carry into the new fiscal year. We will be using $100,000 out of the Crime Control Tax money to offset the cost of police protection provided by the Denton County Sheriff’s Office. We are increasing our town reserve fund to $1.4 million.
On September 12th, the town council passed the budget for fiscal year 2022-2023. The budget was approved by the council, holding the tax rate at .277505.
Many of you have signed up for meeting notifications through our town website: www.coppercanyon-tx.org. By signing up with your email, you can also receive emergency alerts. Due to the growth in our area, we feel it is important to keep our residents informed with what is happening in Copper Canyon as well as surrounding areas.
