Still other taxing entities in the county raised their property tax rates, including the cities of Gordon, Mineral Wells and Mingus.
Unlike local governments, schools cannot raise their tax rate above $1.04, without going to a vote.
This school year, just one school district will have an increased tax rate.
Palo Pinto ISD succeeded in May with a $3 million dollar bond election to make upgrades to the building infrastructure and construct a cafeteria/auditorium. Voters approved an addition 4 cents per $100 valuation, which will be reflected in the 2013-14 school year budget.
Mineral Wells ISD announced earlier in August that it will ask voters to approve a $25 million bond election on Nov. 5. The monies would go toward entirely replacing Lamar Elementary, replacing the high school track, adding security upgrades and making upgrades to the junior high. But this would not become an additional tax until next school year, if approved.
