Spelling correction made changing Royal Monroe to Royal Munro.

FLORESVILLE (Revised 10-4) -- Following no comments from county taxpayers during two public hearings, the Wilson County Commissioners will vote Oct. 4 to set the county’s ad valorem tax rate at 45.33 cents per $100 of assessed value. This reflects no increase from last year. The hearings were held Sept. 26 and Oct. 1.

According to public notices published in the Sept. 19 and 26 Wilson County News, this rate will reduce the county’s proposed budget by $212,065.

According to a Sept. 26 “Notice of Tax Revenue Increase,” proposed tax revenue from new property will add $297,692 to the county’s coffers. The total tax revenue anticipated is $9,612,897.

Interim County Auditor Verna Gorzell, during the Oct. 1 meeting, said the proposed rate will “increase the total tax revenues of the County of Wilson from properties on the tax roll in the preceding year by 5.596 percent.”

Commissioners are scheduled to adopt the tax rate during a special called meeting set for Thursday, Oct. 4, at 11 a.m. in the Wilson County Commissioners Courtroom, Annex III, located at 1103 Fourth St. in Floresville.

During the Sept. 26 meeting, the only attendees other than the commissioners and other county officials were county resident Ralph Gerhardt and this reporter. Other than these two, the Oct. 1 meeting attendance comprised the commissioners, other county officials, and two parties interested in the Wilson County Emergency Services District (ESD) No. 2 agenda item.

In other action Oct. 1, the commissioners appointed Royal Munro as a commissioner for Wilson County ESD No. 2. See more page 5A.

***In attendance: Wilson County Judge Marvin Quinney and commissioners Albert Gamez Jr., Paul Pfeil, Ricky Morales, and Larry Wiley; Interim County Auditor Verna Gorzell, and County Clerk Eva Martinez. Also present Sept. 26 was County Attorney Russell Wilson. Also present Oct. 1 was Wilson County Sheriff Joe D. Tackitt Jr.
