The Sierra Vista City Council unanimously passed the property tax levy ordinance on Thursday night by a 6-0 vote.

Herald/Review reporter Dakota Croog reported that the City of Sierra Vista's proposed primary property tax levy rate is $0.1108 per $100 of assessed value, which should generate an estimated $377,145 next fiscal year.

This is a slight increase from $372,034 in FY21 and $364,370 in FY20. The increase is due to new construction.

Councilmember Angelica Landry introduced the resolution to accept a grant from the Federal Aviation Administration as part of funding from the American Rescue Act.
