Brownsville Community Improvement Corporation (BCIC)


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. This led to the creation of the Brownsville Community Improvement Corporation (BCIC) in 2002.  
The mission of BCIC is to fund quality of life projects and support economic development opportunities in the City of Brownsville.
