Dayton Tax Rollback: Dayton City Council met Monday and canvassed the votes from the May 5 council election as well as the special election asking voters to approve reducing the city’s property tax rate. As reported, that tax rollback election passed 311 to 84. In response, Dayton council members voted to lower the city’s property tax rate from the original council approved 67 cents per $100 of assessed property value to the rollback rate of 65.5 cents per $100. Dayton City Manager Theo Melancon said the city is prepared to deal with the reduced tax rate and correspondingly lower revenue for city services. In other action, Dayton council voted unanimously to change the city’s motto from “Dayton – Making the Difference” to “In God We Trust.”

Homestead Exemption Scam: We have learned about what appears to be a scam that could zero in on local homeowners. Lana McCarty, chief appraiser of the Liberty County Central Appraisal District, said some local citizens are receiving a mailed solicitation from a company called Homestead Designation Services offering to get a homestead exemption for the homeowner for $45. Be advised that nobody is required to fill out that form. Mrs. McCarty said this is not something for which any homeowner needs to pay. A homestead exemption is a service available for no charge at the Liberty County Central Appraisal District office for anyone owning qualified property. For those in other counties, that free service is also available at their corresponding appraisal district. For more information, call the Liberty County CAD office in Liberty at 936-336-5722.
****************************************************
Democrat Primary: The May 22 Primary Runoff Election includes only one race that involves Liberty County voters. That is a runoff for the Democrat candidates for Texas governor. Only those who voted in the March Democrat Primary or who did not vote in either the Republican or Democrat primary are eligible to cast a ballot. Early voting in Liberty County is 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. today through Friday at four locations: the Jack Hartel Community Building in Liberty, Cleveland Civic Center, Dayton Community Center and Hardin City Hall. For more info, call the Liberty County Clerk’s Office at 936-336-4670.
