Commissioners to adopt tax rate Monday

Staff Writer

Howard County commissioners are expected to adopt a “hold the line” tax rate when they meet at 4 p.m. Monday in the third-floor courtroom of the county courthouse.
The top item on Monday’s agenda is adoption of a tax rate for the coming fiscal year,
and, barring any last-second changes, it is expected the county will go with a rate of 44.9 cents per $100 valuation, a figure that will raise the same amount of revenue as the previous fiscal year.
