TRINITY — The city of Trinity will raise property taxes slightly for the next fiscal year to help meet rising costs.

At its regular meeting on Thursday, the Trinity City Council approved an effective rate of 0.6200 percent, or 62 cents per $100 property valuation. The rate for last year was 0.6138.

Mayor Billy Goodin said the increase amounted to $1.01 more per $100 valuation over last year, and would mean an overall increase in revenue of $19,517.

Goodin said the additional funds would help offset inflation costs, particularly in the area of fuel and materials.

A final budget has not yet been approved; City Manager Steve Jones said another budget meeting will be held to finalize the new roadmap for expenses.

In other business, the council:

•approved an ordinance denying any rate increase request from Entergy;

•approved a resolution accepting the 2022 tax roll submitted by the Trinity County Appraisal District;

•approved a resolution establishing a sinking fund for city debt service;

•approved a resolution establishing deposit procedures for paying city debt;

•approved the next fiscal year’s holiday schedule; and

•tabled discussion on lawn service bids and changes to the city’s animal control ordinance.
