Blinn Board of Trustees adopts resolution setting 2021 tax rate

At 5.13 cents per $100 valuation, Blinn's tax rate is expected to remain the lowest in the state

August 18, 2021

The Blinn College District Board of Trustees adopted a resolution to set a 2021 tax rate of $0.0513 per $100 valuation at its regular meeting Tuesday, Aug. 17.

The adopted tax rate represents a decrease from the 2020 tax rate of $0.056 cents per $100 valuation while generating approximately the same revenue: $2,195,007. With the new rate, residents of Blinn’s taxing district in Washington County would pay $4.28 in monthly taxes on a $100,000 home.

Blinn’s tax rate is expected to remain the lowest among the state’s 50 community college districts and represents less than 2% of the College’s annual budget.

During a workshop that preceded the regular meeting, the trustees discussed the districtwide facilities master plan that was approved in June. The workshop included discussion of the proposed order and financing plans for the Phase 1 projects. Blinn’s districtwide facilities master plan is available for viewing at

In other business Tuesday, the board received a report regarding summer II enrollment. Blinn totaled 3,920 students and 326,112 contact hours for the term, a decrease of 747 students from its record-setting 2020 enrollment.

The board also authorized the College to negotiate and execute a contract with Madison Construction, LP, for construction manager at risk services related to repairs and improvements in the Old Main Building.
