Committee votes to keep property tax rate unchanged; approves employee pay hike


On Monday, the Finance, Ways & Means Committee of the Weakley County Commission approved a budget for FY 2017-2018 that leaves the property tax rate unchanged and increases pay for County employees.
Commissioners voted to set the property tax rate at $2.1302 per $100 of assessed value for FY 2017-2018, which is the same rate charged in FY 2016-2017.
In other action, the committee approved a 2.0 percent pay increase for county employees, plus adjustments in salaries for some workers to address pay inequities.
