Make Your Voice Heard on County Taxes and Spending

The first public hearing on the Fiscal Year 2018 county tax rate is at 1:30 PM, Tuesday, September 5, in the Commissioners Courtroom.
This is your opportunity to let us know what you think about the proposed effective tax rate, otherwise known as the “no-new-taxes” rate.
The proposed tax rate means that you will pay the county the same dollar amount in taxes as you did last year, regardless of any increase in your property’s value.
To give you an idea of how your Commissioners Court makes its budget decisions (and how public hearings fit in) this short video produced by the Texas Association of Counties gives a good explanation.
