Placeholder Image
During Thursday night's work session and special called meeting, the Dawson County Board of Commissioners voted to keep the current millage rate unchanged following the third and final required public hearing. Following a 3-to-1 vote with District 2 Commissioner James Swafford dissenting, the board decided the county's current millage rate of 8.138 will remain unchanged for the 2016-2017 year and effectively raise property taxes 4.32 percent over the rollback millage rate. Each year, the county assesses the millage rate and can decide to increase, decrease or roll back the millage rate and keep the property tax amount the same as the previous year.
