The City Council of the City of Richland has managed to pay off the Civic Center building (built in 2003) and the Water Bonds (issued in 1996 to upgrade the water system).  The Civic Center was paid off in 2009, only 6 (six) years after being built; and the Water Bonds were paid off in 2013 (these bonds were set to be paid in the year 2039).  This amounts to a substantial savings in interest for both obligations to be paid off well in advance of the lending term.  We are having a Celebration on Saturday, May 3, 2014acknowledge these historical events.  See details above.


The current tax rate of .2330 per $100 of valuation is the second lowest rate in Navarro County.
