More on YOUR TAXES and the Somervell County Hospital District

22 October 2013 at 1:59:12 PM

Wanted to mention one more thing from the article that appeared in the FW Star-Telegram a couple of weeks ago.

The Somervell County Hospital Authority, which was approved in May by two votes, took about $2 million in operating expenses off the county’s books but added a tax rate of 10.5 cents per $100 of valuation. Combined, the county’s tax increase and the hospital district levy add about $150 a year in taxes for the owner of a $100,000 home.

So, as we said before, not only did Somervell County not give a tax break to residents after the cost of having to maintain the hospital was no longer there, but residents pay more in county taxes AND NOW also the hospital district tax.

Also need to mention Darryl Best's comments about wanting to create Glen Rose as a retirement community.  You may remember Mr Best (who is also rumoured to have more political ambitions, despite his poor track record)  as the one who was

Back to the Star -Telegram, which first mentions that Best moved to Glen Rose from Coppell

The council also wants find ways to encourage commercial growth and promote the area as a retirement community, he said.

That particular statement really fired up a local resident whose husband has retired and she has too. If the taxes go up so that the local residents can no longer afford to live here, is Best trying to make Glen Rose into a mini-Coppell, where only wealthy residents can afford to live and retire here? I've wondered about that too.
