FREEPORT — Port Freeport leaders are concerned with the direction of the Brazoria County business community hurt by the economic upheaval caused by the COVID-19 lockdowns and supports giving property owners a break on their taxes this year to help ease the pain.

Port Freeport’s governing commissioners recently approved accepting the 2020 appraised values while also adopting a resolution supporting tax relief, Public Affairs Manager Lauren McCormick. The resolution recognizes “the actual fair market value of real property within Brazoria County” is less than the tax appraisal valuations set at the start of the year, the measure states.
