Citizens have one more chance to weigh in on the county tax rate at a public hearing Monday morning.

Starting at 8 a.m., county commissioners will accept comment from the public on the proposed county tax rate, and at 8:30 there will be a hearing on the branch campus maintenance tax rate.

The proposed property tax rate is 36 cents per $100 property valuation, 1.89 cents less than last year. It will help fund a $32.9 million budget. The proposed rate for the branch campus maintenance tax is 4.4 cents per $100 property valuation, a slight decrease from the current 4.6148.

Both hearings will be in the third-floor conference room of the Wise County Courthouse and will be followed by the regular commissioners meeting at 9.

The regular meeting includes an executive session to discuss a personnel issue. Commissioners will also discuss the county’s budget for fiscal year 2019, as well as the budget for Weatherford College Wise County.
