ESD No. 3 adopts certified tax totals
STOCKDALE -- The Wilson County Emergency Services District (ESD) No. 3 commissioners continue progress toward determining an ad valorem (property) tax rate. The board of directors reviewed and approved the certification of the ESD’s tax roll as provided by the Wilson County Appraisal District.According to board Secretary Teri Wolff after the board’s Aug. 1 meeting, the net taxable 2013 certified totals for the ESD area total $317,584,819.
Revenue from a tax on the properties -- which cannot exceed 10 cents per $100 of assessed property value -- will be used by the ESD to contract for emergency medical services in the designated area.
Due to the absence of board members Todd Lawson and Kirby Urrabazo, the discussion of the ESD’s budget was tabled.
Also during the meeting, the board members answered questions from Stockdale Volunteer Fire Department Fire Chief Edwin Baker regarding the contract with the Stockdale Emergency Medical Services Association, effective Oct. 1.
In other action, the directors:
•Tabled hiring a certified public accountant until the board’s December meeting.
•Tabled discussion of the tax rate until a special called meeting set for Tuesday, Aug. 20, at 6 p.m. in the JH Bain & Sarabel Bain Memorial Emergency Services Facility, located off S.H. 123 in Stockdale.
Prior to the meeting, a goods-in-transit hearing was held in accordance with section 11.253 of the Texas Tax Code.
“We can tax goods in transit if needed, but don’t plan on it at this time,” Wolff said.
The next regular meeting is scheduled for Thursday, Sept. 5, at 6 p.m. in the Stockdale Economic Development Corp. office.
In attendance: board members Lynn Ray West, August Moczygemba, and Teri Wolff; and Stockdale Volunteer Fire Department Fire Chief Edwin Baker.
