Councilman Bill Freeman brought l he problem belore the council, saying he had received several complaints lrom property owners m the area north of tlighway 31 whicb was annexed bv Trini- dad in 19711. In preparing the tax rolls for the current year. City Secretary Glenda Hiah had assessed all the mmexed pro- perty at the same rale as other property within the town limits, acting m accor- dance with a motion passed by the connci] m 1975, Freeman said there was  "gentlemaWs agreement with property owners m the annexed area lha! tim tax rate would be $1 per parcel, Even though the council re. scinded thai agreernenl m 1975. he said. some ot the property owners did not re- ceive official nohce so were tl')l aA'a]2e t !1"! f }0 ,o,." V';b,-,z were m etfect. To further" complicate the situatmn, it was revealed that some nf the landowners had been paying the increased taxes since 1975. but nol all property had been included on the 1975 tax rolls, therefore some property owners were surprised to recmve their firsl lax salemcnls this year.

Texas Power & Light Company generating plants burn very large amounts of natural gas or lignite coal and, when supplies of gas are short, oil to produce steam which operates turbine generators. Fuel costs are charged to each TP&L customer according to the number of kilowatt-hours of electricity used by the customer. Before July 1, 1977, your basic rate for electric service included a fuel cost of about eight-tenths of one cent for each kilowatt-hour. The additional cost of fuel used to produce your electricity was shown on your bill as a fuel adjustment factor. Since July 1, 1977, under requirements of the new Public Utility Commission of Texas. all fuel costs have been removed from the basic Now, the entire amount yo pay for the fuel required to produce the electricity yot used is shown on your bill the space identified This amount is figured by multiplying the number of kilowatt-hours of el, you used by a fuel ad factor which appears on bill in the space identified, Fuel Cost per Kwh. This factor s simply the per kilowatt-hour cost of all fuel required to produce your electricity. The fuel cost per kilowatt- hour and the fuel amount o0 your electric bill will month to month. These variations, either up or occur as the price TP&L for each kind of and as the amount of each of fuel used varies. IEXAS I'()WER & LI(;ttI (X)MPANY A tax-paying investor-owned electric utility
