ECTOR COUNTY, TX (KWES) -

Ector County is dealing with budget woes and as a result Ector County Commissioners approved a tax rate hike on Monday.

Now, they'll be holding public meetings on it.

The county judge proposed a $60.5 million budget despite the fact they're predicting a drop in revenue.

One of the things they're dealing with is less money coming in from property taxes.

No word on when the public meetings will be held.
