Uvalde County Commissioners are eyeing a lower tax rate this year, but property owners could still see higher tax bills if their valuations increased.
County auditor Alice Chapman recommended setting a tax rate of 73.59 cents per $100 valuation, a slight decrease from last year’s rate of 74.09.
Proposed expenses total $15,272,355, after $26,021 was added to the anticipated $250,000 outlay for insurance coverage. When the workshop began Thursday evening, the proposed budget was balanced with expenses projected to total $15,246,334 and proposed revenue of $15,247,044.
Commissioners met for a whirlwind 31-minute session Thursday evening, when Chapman walked them through changes made since the workshop conducted in mid-July.
During the meeting, Chapman said projected revenues were based on conservative figures. Speaking Friday morning she said some underestimated revenue sources would be increased to account for the addition.
