Through a special election held on November 7, 2001, the citizens of Brownsville voted to reduce the Section 4A economic development sales and use tax from 1/2 cent to 1/4 cent and adopt the Section 4B economic development sales and use tax at 1/4 cent.

The mission of BCIC is to fund quality of life projects and support economic development opportunities in the City of Brownsville.
