Todd County Judge Executive Darryl Greenfield will propose a property tax rate at tomorrow morning’s Fiscal Court meeting and says he wants to keep it the same.
As always, magistrates will have the option to keep the rate the same, they could take the compensating rate to keep the same revenue or they could choose to increase revenue by four percent by increasing taxes.
Judge Greenfield says keeping the rate at 9.9 cents per 100 dollars of assessed value is the option he will recommend.
Judge Greenfield says he just doesn’t believe now is the time to raise taxes on Todd County residents while the economy continues to struggle.
Todd Fiscal Court will meet at 9am at the courthouse. The Judge says court will not vote on an ordinance, they will only decide which way they want to go and take up an ordinance next meeting. The agenda is rather routine outside of the tax proposal.
