Where does Trinidad get their Money? PDF Print E-mail

Cities pave our streets, fight crime, prepare us for disaster, bring water to our taps, take our trash away, build and maintain our infrastructure - the list goes on and on.  These services cost money.  Trinidad's General Fund revenue is made up of the following sources:

Sales Tax

Sales taxes are a leading source of city revenue.  The revenue can be used for any purpose other than payment of debt.  The Texas comptroller, who "rebates" the city share on a monthly basis, performs collection of sales taxes.  The comptroller retains a small portion of the city tax revenue to cover the state's administrative costs.

The History of Trinidad PDF Print E-mail
Attempting to get an authentic history of the Trinidad area has not been as easy task and takes much work, reading and chronologically lining up dates and names. But most agree the Cotton Belt Railroad and water had a lot to do with the making of the little town of Trinidad. It may not be the smallest town in Henderson County, but it most likely has the smallest school, complete with grades from kindergarten (or pre-school) to seniors.
