Property Tax Deadline: The official deadline for property owners to pay any remaining 2017 property taxes without incurring attorney collection costs is drawing near. The annual deadline for taxpayers to pay those taxes without attorney fees that can be up to 20 percent is June 30. Since that falls on a Saturday this year, taxpayers have until Monday, July 2, to make those payments. Liberty County Tax Assessor Collector Ricky Brown said even paying a portion of property taxes owed could save taxpayers a substantial amount of money. The main tax office is in the Liberty County Courthouse. There are also offices at the annex on FM 1960 in Dayton and on Campbell Street in Cleveland. For information, call 936-336-4633.
Dayton Budget: Dayton city officials are preparing a budget for the coming fiscal year, including the impact from the recent Tax Rollback Election. We’ve reported a citizen petition prompted a special election in May where city voters approved reducing the city’s property tax rate. As the law requires, Dayton council approved lowering the city’s property tax rate from 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 most obvious affect of the tax rollback on the budget is a loss of approximately $100,000 in revenue to fund city services. He said Dayton council is looking at a very tight budget for the coming fiscal year to ensure the city’s credit rating remains strong.
Ride for Foster Kids: It’s a communitywide motorcycle ride for a worthy cause. The Hardin Chapter of the San Jacinto High Rollers Motorcycle Club is holding a “Kick Stands Up for Kids” ride on Saturday, June 16, to benefit local foster children. Proceeds go to the Rainbow Room, an emergency resource supply space managed by the Liberty County CPS Advisory Board. Bikers will start gathering at 9 a.m. June 16 at the B&S Club with kickstands up at 10:30 for the ride. The group will return to the B&S Club a little after noon. Cost is $20 per rider plus $10 for a passenger. Once back at the club, there will be food, drinks and a silent auction. Everyone is welcome, not just riders. Signup online at
