McLennan County auditor says taxes may need to be increased
MCLENNAN COUNTY, TX (KXXV) -
A McLennan County auditor says that for the county to reach it's target revenue, taxes may have to be increased.
Stan Chambers gave a report to the McLennan County Commissioners Court on Tuesday that focused on a possible decline in taxable property values. This came from a preliminary report done by the appraisal district office.
According to Chambers, the county may have to raise taxes to continue operating the county within it's approved budget and to not drain the reserve fund.
The current budget allows for spending $6 million more than the county's revenue.
