It seems that if Howard College officials didnâ€™t receive bad news on the financial front, they wouldnâ€™t receive any news at all.
Trustees will hold a public hearing on the proposed tax rate and hear an update on efforts to craft a new budget when they meet at 12:30 p.m. Monday in the student union buildingâ€™s Tumbleweed Room.
The proposed new tax rate â€” 17.66 cents per $100 valuation â€” is actually 6 cents lower than the current rate, but a $1 billion increase in the districtâ€™s certified valuations will result in the college pulling in more local tax money this coming fiscal year.
