Recent rains may spell end to burn ban

August 25, 2012

The commissioners court gave the go-ahead for the current burn ban during its July 30 meeting at the request of Howard County Volunteer Fire Chief Tommy Sullivan. Each ban stays in effect for 90 days unless rescinded by the court.

College to put budget to bed

August 25, 2012

Howard College officials are more than ready to get this budget business behind them for another year.

After a summer dealing with uncertainty and shortfalls, trustees are expected to approve the college's budget and tax rate for the coming fiscal year when they hold their monthly meeting at 12:30 p.m. Monday in the student union building's Tumbleweed Room.

Trustees will likely OK a tax rate of roughly 18 cents per $100 valuation, which is 6 cents below the previous year's rate but will still bring in more local tax revenue in 2012-2013.
