Big Spring ISD looks to adopt budget, tax rate

August 29, 2012

Big Spring Independent School District trustees are expected to approve a budget and tax rate for the coming fiscal year when they hold a special meeting at 5:15 p.m. Thursday in the high school board room.

The new budget, officials say, is very similar to the previous package, with the obvious exception being that millions of dollars in construction bond money has been spent.

Construction resulting from the $60 million bond, approved by voters in 2010, is expected to wrap up by early next year.

Appraisal miscue has city rethinking tax rate

August 29, 2012

Big Spring City Council is faced with a tough fiscal decision in the coming weeks, as the municipality will have to choose between going more than 2 cents above the proposed tax rate or find a way to make up for more than $130,000 in lost revenue.

The proposed tax rate for the coming year — the rate published by the city and certified by the Howard County Appraisal District — is 86.5043 cents per $100 property valuation, council members were told Tuesday.
