Council to consider appraisal district budget

June 13, 2011

The proposed 2012 budget for the Howard County Appraisal District will once again take center stage during Tuesday's meeting of the Big Spring City Council, as the government panel looks to make its disapproval of the fiscal plan official.

The council will meet at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday in its chambers on East Fourth Street.

The council disapproved the proposed budget — which was presented at the May 24 meeting — on a 4-1 vote, citing a $15,000 raise in salary for Chief Appraiser Brett McKibben as the reason.

District 2 Councilman Manuel Ramirez Jr. was absent for the vote, District 5 Councilman Craig Olson abstained due to personal dealings with McKibben and District 6 Councilman Terry Hansen voted against the disapproval. District 1 Councilman Marcus Fernandez, District 2 Councilman Glenn Carrigan, Mayor Tommy Duncan and District 4 Councilwoman Gloria McDonald voted to disapprove the proposed budget.
