Jacksboro ISD is looking at a $235,000 drop in property values for the upcoming school year. The certified tax values have decreased from $1.19 billion for the district to $950 million.
Jacksboro City Council approved a proposed tax rate of $1.263505 per $100 of value, or the effective rate, which should generate approximately $1.45 million in revenue at its meeting Monday.
Two Bryson City employees will be affected by the new US Department of Labor overtime regulations.
Additional charges have been filed against the three suspects arrested for some recent burglaries.
A man was arrested after leading law enforcers from several agencies on a chase Saturday morning that paused briefly in Graham before completing its loop to and from Bryson.
