Howard County residents are asked to focus on the positive, but that’s not all.
The Big Spring Area Chamber of Commerce not only wants residents to find positive things around the county, but to put them down on paper and submit them.
“There are positive things about Howard County and all those positive things are for the betterment of the communities,” Debbye ValVerde, executive director of the chamber, said.
Officials with the Howard County Tax Collector’s Office say 2011 property tax bills have been mailed out and area residents can expect to receive them in the next few days — if they haven’t already.
County Tax Collector Kathy Sayles said her office is currently contracting with a company that stuffs the envelopes and mails out the statements for the Tax Collector’s Office.
