City Election to Reauthorize Street Maintenance Sales Tax 

A Special City Election will be held on Tuesday, November 7, 2023, asking Helotes voters to reauthorize the 0.25% street maintenance sales tax to continue providing revenue for the maintenance and repair of existing city streets. This question will appear on the election ballot as Proposition A.

The street maintenance sales tax is not new, it does not increase the sales tax rate in Helotes, nor does it affect the property tax rate. The street maintenance sales tax expires on March 31, 2024, unless reauthorized by Helotes voters.
