A little math about Gonzales’s budget and the rollback issue.
Divide $27,000,000 by Gonzales population (7,628) and that equals 3,539.591 (rounded).
That is $3,529.60 for every man, woman and child living in the city limits.
I know that businesses, factorys, etc. will pay some of this. However raising city utilities, even tripling, will only pay a fraction of this.
