County continues work on new financial package

August 11, 2012

Howard County commissioners will continue to fine-tune their FY 2012-2013 budget when they hold their regular meeting at 10 a.m. Monday on the third floor of the county courthouse.
Commissioners have already given a tentative OK to a new tax rate of 33 cents per $100 valuation, a decrease of more than 10 cents from the previous rate. However, because of a sharp increase in the county’s property valuations, the new rate will bring in more tax revenue this year, County Auditor Jackie Olson said.

Budget Battles

August 11, 2012

It seems that if Howard College officials didn’t receive bad news on the financial front, they wouldn’t receive any news at all.
Trustees will hold a public hearing on the proposed tax rate and hear an update on efforts to craft a new budget when they meet at 12:30 p.m. Monday in the student union building’s Tumbleweed Room.
The proposed new tax rate — 17.66 cents per $100 valuation — is actually 6 cents lower than the current rate, but a $1 billion increase in the district’s certified valuations will result in the college pulling in more local tax money this coming fiscal year.
