Residents Speak Out Against Proposed Howard College Tax Hike

BIG SPRING, TX (KWES) -

Howard College officials heard from several residents during a public hearing about a proposed tax hike on Monday night.

Three people spoke out against the tax rate which would be increased by seven cents over the current rollback rate, if it's approved.

The college president says that the extra money is needed because state funding has been cut back for the campus in Big Spring.

A second hearing on the issue will be held this Thursday at 5:30 p.m. inside the trustees meeting room inside the student union building.
