Notice of Public Hearing on Tax Rate

The Lakeway Municipal Utility District will hold a public hearing on a proposed tax rate for the tax year 2022 on September 14, 2022 at 9:30am at the District Office located at 1097 Lohmans Crossing. Your individual taxes may increase at a greater or lesser rate, or even decrease, depending on the tax rate that is adopted and on the change in the taxable value of your property in relation to the change in the taxable value of all other property. The change in taxable value of your property in relation to the change in taxable value of all other property determines the distribution of the tax burden among all property owners.
