Trustees eye tax rate adoption

September 13, 2014

Howard College trustees will consider the final adoption of the 2015 tax rate of 17.7 cents per $100 valuation before heading into the bulk of their regular meeting Monday.

If passed, an owner with a home valued at $100,000 will see an estimated $14.71 decrease if their home value stayed relatively the same as last year, but the proposed rate is still expected to raise more tax revenue than last year.

Water rates could go down for some

September 12, 2014

Not everybody’s water bills are going to increase — some will even go down a bit.

The Big Spring City Council Thursday unanimously approved new water usage rates that will offer a little bit of relief to low -and fixed-income households.

The city is passing along a recent 6 percent increase from the Colorado River Municipal Water District to customers, but not everybody will see that increase reflected in their monthly bills.
