Victoria building mugs

The Victoria City Council meets at the municipal court building, 107 W. Juan Linn St.

Victoria City Council began discussions Tuesday about creating a Tax Increment Reinvestment Zone downtown as a way of funding some of the ideas presented in the Downtown Master Plan.

“We want to be clear this is not a new tax,” said City Manager Jesús Garza. “We don’t want people thinking this is something on top of what they pay.”
