    "It's dishonorable..." lack of quorum shuts down debate about public transit

    BY SANDRA BAKER sabaker@star-telegram.com

    SEPTEMBER 22, 2017 05:07 PM UPDATED SEPTEMBER 22, 2017 10:07 PM

    FORT WORTH — A proposal to devote city property tax revenue to expanded bus service in Fort Worth appears dead after two council members who opposed the measure failed to show up for a public hearing Friday afternoon.

    The council had scheduled a special session for a public hearing to change the property tax rate that, if approved, could have given the T about $2.8 million from tax revenues in 2018. The Fort Worth Transportation Authority has said it needs the money to implement expanded bus services to the city’s west side.

    The council knew three of its members had conflicts and were not going to be able to make the meeting. But when Cary Moon of District 4 and Jungus Jordan of District 6 did not show for the meeting, Mayor Betsy Price declared a lack of quorum 15 minutes after it was supposed to start.

    About four dozen residents, some in wheelchairs who previously have spoken about being transit dependent, showed up to the meeting. About half of them met with Councilwoman Ann Zadeh afterward in a separate meeting room, where 17 people spoke.

    SEPTEMBER 21, 2017 03:32 PM UPDATED SEPTEMBER 21, 2017 06:58 PM

    FORT WORTH — It’s clear the City Council is headed toward spending property tax revenue on public transportation for the first time in the city’s history.

    That means homeowners will contribute to the city’s bus system by paying more property taxes than the city had originally planned, about $10 to $20 more for the owner of a $200,000 home.

    Not all of the council members will agree to it. They will discuss the issue further Friday during a public hearing on the 2018 budget.

    Council members are torn between continuing to lower the city’s property tax rate in the wake of rising property values and improving the transportation system for a better quality of life.

    FORT WORTH — Amazon nearly made Fort Worth a $6 million delivery, and with the help of Facebook.

    Young professionals pointing to Amazon’s expansion plan convinced City Council to think a few days about a larger tax increase and buying an extra $6 million in better city bus service.

    Two council opponents eventually sank the idea. But it was last-minute anyway. It was another example of civic activism fostered on Facebook.

    BY SANDRA BAKER sabaker@star-telegram.com

    FORT WORTH — The City Council has opened the door to expanded bus service by its decision to consider taking property tax revenues and spending it on public transportation.

    Councilwoman Ann Zadeh pressed the issue Tuesday night, saying “fixing the transit system is our job.”

    The council voted 6-1 to consider setting the proposed property tax rate for 2018 to 81.5 cents per $100 assessed valuation, which is one cent higher than what’s been proposed.

    Zadeh wants the revenue from the penny, or about $5.7 million, to go to the Fort Worth Transportation Authority, or the T. The money would be used to expand and improve services to the city’s west side.

    FORT WORTH — Advocates for public transportation plan to ask the Fort Worth City Council on Tuesday to put more money toward the city’s transit needs.

    The Tarrant Transit Alliance was launched late last week on the heels of Councilwoman Ann Zadeh’s plea to her council colleagues that the city not reduce the property tax rate as planned.

    Instead of the proposed reduction of 3 cents for the 2018 budget, Zadeh suggested a cut of 2 cents, with the money going to the T to help it improve services.

    Zadeh’s remarks came during a budget work session Thursday, in which she said it was “irresponsible” the city wasn’t doing more to help the T put in a master plan the City Council asked for three years ago. She also said the council needs to stop talking about improving public transportation and actually do something.
