Howard County Election Officials Validate College Tax Rate Petition

HOWARD COUNTY, TX (KWES) -

Howard County Election officials have finished validation on signatures that could lower Howard College tax rates.

The petition is calling for an election to make the tax rollback happen.

The group behind the petition says they needed 1,054 confirmed signatures.

Election officials confirm they validated 1,172 names.

With this petition, a rollback election could be held in December.

Howard College's Board of Trustees will meet later this month to consider the information.

The board is expected to adopt a resolution regarding the validity of the petition and move on to the next step.

Howard College increased the rate after state funding cuts.
