18 Bexar Countys population projected to increase by 13.3 percent through 2017 Increase of 268,000 citizens Estimated Bexar County population in 2017 of 1.9 million citizens Service Delivery Plan 18

19 If cost-effective service delivery methods arent identified, the cost of serving our growing County population could be $19.2 million over the next five years. This does not include City Like Services Service Delivery Plan 19

20 If City Like Services were in the unincorporated area of Bexar County: Tax rate increase of $ per $100 valuation Would bring total tax rate up to $1.552 per $100 valuation Constitutional Limit of $0.80 per $100 valuation There is an RFP out to develop options for citizens in the unincorporated area to acquire more City Like Services, as needed.
