Water District No. 1 Ad Valorem Increase
Thank you for your patience while waiting for an explanation of the increase of the ad valorem portion of your property tax bill. The large increase this year is due to an increase in personnel costs. Over the previous two years this amount of your bill has decreased significantly. Next year, we will try to even out these fluctuations so it will be more clear. If you would like to ask more detailed questions, please stop by or call the Town Hall and talk to me.
Joe Pete Wilson, Town Supervisor
