Commerce Mayor Wyman Williams says the city's tax rate for 2016-17 will likely remain the same at 82 cents per $100 in property value. That rate will generate an additional $40,000 in revenue because of an increase in property values, the mayor says. A public hearing on the tax rate is set for Tuesday night, September 6. On another topic, the mayor says the city received 46 applications for the city manager's job and the field has now been narrowed to three. And Wyman says progress is taking place again on opening the Tipitina's music facility proposed for the old A.L. Day Elementary School building in east Commerce.
