The commissioners court also held a public hearing on a proposed increase of more than $2 million in tax revenues to $57.8 million in the next fiscal year's budget, made possible by higher property valuations.Next time you hear a local politician say, "we didn't raise taxes," ask him/her why government entities are seeing more in revenues. I realize that they have to provide services for the public; I just don't like them taking credit for tax relief that doesn't exist.
