Short budget hearing after no one takes the podium at Commissioners Court

Monday morning Victoria County Commissioners held a public hearing to discuss the proposed 2020 tax increase and to take a vote. No citizens took the podium to discuss the budget and subsequently the meeting was adjourned in less than two minutes.

This budget will raise more revenue from property taxes than last year’s budget by an amount of more than $2 million. This is an 8.84% increase from last year’s budget.

The next hearing is scheduled for Thursday September 19 th at 10 a.m.
