Property tax rates designed to fund the Taylor County Health Department will drop slightly.
In a special-called meeting Monday morning, magistrates on the Taylor County Fiscal Court heard from Alicia Griffith of the Taylor County Health Department.
She told them the Taylor County Board of Health met earlier this year and approved a rate of 3.25 cents per $100 of assessed valuation of real and personal property, as well as motor vehicles.
The new rates will take effect Jan. 1, 2016.
The current rate is 4 cents per $100 of assessed valuation.
