The Edmonson County Fiscal Court held a public hearing this morning at 8:55am for the purpose of public discussion about the tax rate for 2016. Anyone wishing to add input or ask questions was invited to this morning's meeting.
Judge Wil Cannon proposed that no changes would be made to the tax rates and opened the floor for discussion. After no discussion was had, the court voted to keep tax rates the same as the previous year at the following rates in cents per $100:
Real Property 13.9
Tangible Property 19.5
Motor Vehicle 17.1
Editor's note: The Edmonson Voice is regularly asked why meetings such as this are not announced in our online publication. By state law, the court is required to advertise public meetings and notices in a printed newspaper only, for which the court pays regular rates. The court normally does not pay to have the same info published in the Edmonson Voice.
