Court keeps 2010 tax rates for 2011, Sets Public Hearings

Tyler County Booster

Tyler County Commissioners Monday approved a tax rate of .4433 (same as 2010) for the General Fund and .1668 (also the same as 2010) for Road & Bridge, both which exceed the effective rate for 2011 and trigger public hearings. The effective rates for 2011 are .42878 and .1613, respectively. The Hospital said they could live with the 2011 effective rate of .1369 (2010 was .1417) and will not have to have public hearings. Tyler County Judge Jacques Blanchette said the Hospital had made adjustments earlier in the year anticipating less money for the budget. Commissioners then scheduled two public hearings for Thursday, September 16 at 10 a.m. and Wednesday, September 22 at 10 a.m., followed by the vote on the 2011 budget Monday, Sept 27, also at 10 a.m.
