Victoria County Commissioners

The Victoria County Commissioners Court

Victoria County Commissioners Court voted Monday to establish a 700-acre area at the Port of Victoria as a reinvestment zone, allowing for possible future tax abatements in the area, despite concerns raised by several residents.

“This reinvestment zone is a designation with the state that enables a future tax abatement to be granted within that zone,” said County Judge Ben Zeller.

In the exact same way that citizen concerns about how Harvey money was spent are being ignored, so too are our concerns now.

Yet somehow we keep electing these same people.

Based on this article, it sounds like citizens asking for a public hearing and that going on deaf ears. A public hearing at a time of day when most people aren’t at work would likely allow more people to voice concerns and have those concerns addressed.
