Fiscal Court keeps tax rates the same as last year
During Tuesday’s Bell County Fiscal Court meeting, it was approved that the 2019 tax rate remains exactly where it is with no change. The fiscal court chose not to approve the compensating tax rate, which would have generated $37,000 but also increased taxes.
“We’re going to eat $37,000 and keep it the same,” Brock explained.
Bell County Resident Angela Jackson brought the discussion of a needle exchange program before the fiscal court during Tuesday’s meeting. Judge Brock said he would support it if it was in a location that wants it and in a controlled environment on a regular basis.
The meeting can be seen on MCTV CH 377 on Saturday afternoon at 2 pm.
