Not one citizen attended the county public hearings Thursday night on the college branch campus maintenance tax rate and the county tax rate.

Wise County commissioners have proposed keeping both rates the same – 4.618 cents per $100 property valuation for the college and 37.89 cents for the county.

Only one citizen attended the early morning public hearings on Aug. 28.

Commissioners are slated to approve both tax rates and the county budget at Monday’s regular commissioners meeting.

It’s at 9 a.m in the third floor conference room of the Wise County Courthouse in Decatur and is open to the public.

Commissioners will also consider the dates, times and locations for early voting in the Nov. 7 constitutional amendment and joint election and consider consolidated polling locations for Election Day.

Before the meeting, public hearings will be held starting at 8:30 a.m. to receive comments for the proposed adoption of a plan for the county and district clerk archive funds.
