Property Taxes Set To Spike in Dallas County

View Comments

After weeks of debate and controversy, the Dallas County Commissioner’s Court has voted to raise property taxes in the budget that faces final approval September 21st.  Dallas County property owners will now pay about 18 dollars more per year.  Judge Jim Foster announced recently he was in favor of the 1.5 cent increase, and in court, Commissioner Maureen Dickey told a packed chamber of nervous county employees that she didn’t think deeper cuts could be found.  Dickey said she would reluctantly vote in favor of the property tax increase.  The budget, which still does include dozens of layoffs, will be approved on September 21st.
