Todd Fiscal Court voted Friday morning to keep its property tax rate the same as it’s been for several years.
It will remain at 9.9 cents per $100 of assessed value on real and personal property—as Judge-Executive Todd Mansfield says the county can function well without raising taxes.
Todd County Library Director Audrea Clairmont reported that their board recently approved an increase from 5.9 to 6.2 cents per $100 of assessed value—equating to an extra $3 yearly for the owner of a $100,000 home.
Magistrates approved spending about $550 to purchase a security camera system for the Todd County Courthouse and Judge Mansfield says it’s for safety and liability purposes.
The Todd County Clerk’s Office left a report with Judge Mansfield indicating that residents of Allensville will no longer have to drive to South Todd Elementary School to vote. That precinct has been moved to Mount Pleasant Baptist Church, following recent approval from the state.
The Guthrie precincts are being moved from the Transportation Museum to the new fire department building. Voters at those precincts will soon receive a post card notifying them of the change.
Fiscal Court gave Jailer Greg Allen authority to purchase a 2019 Chevy Impala for $21,682 that will be used for transporting inmates.
