The Ellis County Commissioners Court will hold a final public hearing on the upcoming fiscal year’s tax rate at 10 a.m. Monday morning.
The tax rate in question is $0.413599 per $100 of taxable value, the same tax rate as the past two fiscal years. County Auditor Mike Navarro said the county is looking to support a $53.7 million budget for the upcoming fiscal year, up from last year’s budget of $52.3 million.
