Mayor Nirenberg says Gov. Abbotts property tax freeze plan wont change how city looks at changes to policing
SAN ANTONIO San Antonio Mayor Ron Nirenberg said Gov. Greg Abbotts proposal to freeze property tax revenue for cities that de-fund their police departments wont limit what changes the city considers for its own department. Any city that de-funds police departments will have its property tax revenue frozen at the current level. They will never be able to increase property tax revenue again if they de-fund police, Abbott said Tuesday. Local activists have made clear their frustration with the current budget proposal, which includes a raise for police officers.
