August 24, 2011

The city of Big Spring took a step forward Tuesday night in solidifying its proposed 2011-2012 budget and ad valorem tax rate, calling for a public hearing on the matter to be held during its next council meeting.

The proposed budget is based on a 94.95-cent per $100 valuation tax rate, a drop of 5 cents compared to last year's 99.95 cent rate. The proposed rate is also nearly 5 cents below the effective tax rate of 99.7 cents per $100 valuation.
