Azle City Council and City Staff worked throughout the summer to prepare a budget for the new fiscal year that begins on October 1. 

  • A proposed budget was presented to City Council in August and City Council and Staff held a work session on August 10, 2021 to review and discuss the proposed budget and property tax rate. 
  • Public hearings on the proposed FY 2021/2022 budget, property tax rate and water/sewer rates were held on Tuesday, August 17, 2021. 
  • On Monday, August 23, 2021, Azle City Council approved ordinances to adopt a budget (Ord 2021-10), set the tax rate (Ord 2021-11), and set water/sewer rates (Ord 2021-12) for FY 2021/2022. Azle water/sewer customers will see no increase in rates. The property tax rate for FY 2021/2022 was set at $0.646149 per $100 valuation, which is a slight reduction from the prior rate of $0.657204. Individual taxpayers’ property taxes may decrease, increase or remain the same depending on changes in the appraised value of their property. 

As a reminder, your overall property tax bill includes taxing amounts from the City of Azle, Azle ISD and various county agencies.
