Hopkins County Commissioners Court will be meeting Monday morning at 9 a.m. to consider adopting the proposed $15.3 million budget for the county and to set the tax rate for the coming year.
“The tax rate itself we are leaving the same, which is 56 cents,” Judge Chris Brown said. “We’re looking at a total of almost $7.5 million in property tax and sales tax. That’s what we are looking at.”
The same tax rate will bring in new revenue, a large part from sales tax and from new construction. That is anticipated to give the county “the ability to make the improvements we are wanting to make this year,” Brown said.
Commissioners will also consider adopting the Rules of Hopkins for On-Site Sewage facilities in the Monday meeting.
Commissioners will consider accepting bids for the purchase of a new backhoe for Precinct 3.
Following the regular meeting, the commissioners court will adjourn to a work session to meet with the manager of Hopkins County Regional Civic Center to discuss events, repairs and improvements, as well as revenues and expenditures for the facility.
The work session will also include meeting with DRG Architects to receive an update on the design and estimates for a proposed new county jail.
