Collin County Commissioners have been hard at work in a series of budget workshops for the proposed Fiscal Year 2014 –’15 budget. 

 

According to information provided by County Commissioner Chris Hill, this year’s proposed tax rate will decrease by a quarter-cent.

 

“I remain steadfast in my commitment to the citizens of Collin County that once we’ve funded government, paid our debts, planned for emergencies, and built up our surplus fund, any additional funds belong to the taxpayers who fund government,” Hill said. “You can be sure that there are always more ways we can spend your tax dollars, but I am intentional about providing responsible leadership and limited government for the citizens of Collin County.”

 

For the complete story see the Aug. 28 edition of The Farmersville Times.
