From The News-Courier staff—
BENJAMIN—The Knox County Commissioners Court voted to propose a tax rate of .55083 cents for its general fund and .11317 cents for its special (roads and bridges) account during a recent special meeting.
This no-new-revenue rate will raise the same amount of property tax revenue from the same properties in both the 2019 and 2020 tax years, so the county is not proposing to increase property taxes for 2020.
The M&O rate is not greater than the non-new-revenue of .55083 cents, which used to be called effective, or the voter-approval rate of .57130 cents, which used to be called rollback, while the road and bridges levy of .11317 cents is no greater than the no-new-revenue rate of .11317 cents or the voter-approved rate of .11725 cents.
A public meeting to vote on the proposed tax rate will be held at 9 a.m., Monday, Sept. 21, at the Knox County Courthouse.
Citizens may express their support or opposition to the proposed rate by contacting members of the court—Nathan Urbanczyk, Dan Godsey, Jimmy Urbanczyk or Johnny McGowan—or by attending the meeting.
A public notice also appears elsewhere in this issue.
