Big Spring City Council Proposes New Tax Rate

BIG SPRING, TX (KWES) -

A new tax rate was proposed by the Big Spring City Council at Tuesday night's meeting.

The proposed rate is 77 cents and is just a few cents less than the current rate for property owners.

The increase will raise slightly more revenue for the city.

Recently, some Howard County property owners were not happy with growing property value estimate resulting in higher taxation.

The city council plans on holding public hearings.

They're scheduled for August 25th and September 8th in the city council chambers at 5:30 p.m.
