No increase in proposed tax rate
By Judith Pannebaker BCC Editor
During a meeting on Thursday, August 26, Bandera County Commissioners set the proposed tax rate for county residents at $0.6769 per $100 valuation. The tax rate has not increased over the last several years.
"Considering this economy, it is remarkable that the tax rate has increased for three years running," said Precinct 2 Commissioner Bobby Harris.
Public hearings on the proposed budget for fiscal year 2014-2015 and the proposed tax rate will take place at 10 am, Thursday, Sept. 11, and at 7 pm, Thursday, Sept. 18.
Additionally, Central Appraisal District Chief Appraiser Wendy Grams, RPA, CCA, presented the court with the 2013 CAD audit report, the 2014 roll certification and the 2015 CAD budget. Grams will include the information in an article to be published in a future edition of the Bandera County Courier.
Bandera County Attorney Janna Lindig asked the court to accept miscellaneous contributions to the Bandera County Animal Control that totaled over $420, in addition to donations of necessary items, such as canned dog food and bedding. Also, Chihuahua Rescue & Transport assisted with the neutering of 16 chihuahuas in the county that had remained with their owners and had not been rescued.
Anyone who would like to donate funds or items to the county animal control operation is asked to contact Lindig at 830-460-8143 or 830-796-4075.
