Kaufman County Commissioners will meet this coming Monday, September 26th, and for the first time in a while, the county's budget is not on the agenda. Commissioners approved the budget this past Monday, and ratified the new tax rate at that meeting. Next Monday's agenda includes a public hearing on the adoption of a district court records archive fee of $10. Commissioners will also discuss the current voter ID law for the November election, with information provided by Tonya Ratcliff, Kaufman County's Tax Assessor Collector, who also serves as voter registrar.
Council member Charles Whitaker questioned the council and city officials concerning limits on fund requests from the city's hotel/motel tax fund during last night's meeting of the Terrell City Council. Whitaker noted some organizations have asked for large increases of 40 to 60 per cent over what they received the previous year, and said he believes there should be a maximum limit on increases in money requested, making the distribution more fair to all organizations involved. Whitaker then made the motion to approve the allocation of the full $407,417. The council also passed on second reading the ordinance adopting new regulations for city park use, the ordinance fixing the tax rate for the city, and an ordinance adding territory to the extraterritorial jurisdiction of the city of Terrell.
