By Planos' Citizens Coalition The second and FINAL public hearing on the Plano city budget is Wednesday, September 5 at 6:30pm at the Plano Municipal Center, located at 1520 K Avenue. NOW is the time to speak up and let your voice be heard. It’s now or never.
You can do so by:
Telling Plano City Council to not raise your city taxes by signing the informal Empower Texans petition (access by clicking the link. https://action.empowertexans.com/planotaxrate
The petition was presented to each city council member with 557 signatures at the last meeting. Let’s double that number!
Sign the Petition: Tell the City Council to Adopt the Effective Tax Rate
Voicing your protest in person or by telephone.
If you would like to speak before City Council on Wednesday or just register your opposition, you can call the City Secretary's Assistant, Alice at (972) 941-7515. She will record your opinion or speaker card. Tell Alice that you want to register your opinion on Public Hearing Item #1. Council should vote "No" to the proposed tax rate of $0.4603 cents. Let them know you want them to cut the property tax rate by 3 cents (effective tax rate).
Emailing your opposition of the proposed tax rate to Plano City Council Members.
You can reach all city council members directly at: email@example.com
Or you may also contact city council members individually at:

Remember, the effective tax rate IS doable regardless of what they tell you. It is up to us to insist on it. By the way, it will not require they cut any city services, jobs, or incur debt. Those are scare tactics used to silence taxpayers.
