Limestone County commissioners learned at last week’s meeting how much money the new tax levy is expected to bring in based on the Appraisal Board’s final appraisal rolls. They also dealt with other financial and contractual issues.

County Tax Assessor-Collector Stacy Hall presented the finalized tax rolls to the court for approval.

“I imported the appraisal roll, and our system applied the tax rate, which created a tax levy for the general fund of $13,794,697.95; the Road and Bridge Fund, $498,578.22; and Farm to Market Fund, $473,146.04; for a total levy of $14,766,422.21,” Hall said.

The commissioners approved the tax rolls as presented.

On a separate matter, the court approved changes to the contracts with attorneys David Moore and Shirley Spivey, who provide legal services for defendants with mental health issues.
