The Eagle Pass City Council held their first meeting of the year on Tuesday, January 5, 2021.
During the meeting, members of the City Council discussed and acted on several important topics which included the possible waiver of delinquent ad valorem taxes due to economic hardships.
The item was taken into executive session to consult with legal counsel over the possibilities of structuring such waiver.
Once back in open session, Mayor Luis Sifuentes announced that waiving the delinquent fees was not a viable option, but an extension could possibly assist those residents having difficulties laying their ad valorem taxes.
The Eagle Pass City Council did order City Manager George Antuna and Administration to draft a resolution seeking for the Office of the Governor to allow for an extension to be set in place thus giving taxpayers extra time to pay their taxes without facing the delinquent fees.
The City Council which consists of Mayor Luis Sifuentes, Mayor Pro Tem Billy Davis, Attorney Rolando Salinas, Elias Diaz, and Yolanda Ramon voted in favor of drafting a resolution seeking the extension.
The resolution will be presented this coming week and be sent to the Governor’s office for consideration.
