Council held the second of two public hearings regarding the proposed tax rate on Tuesday, September 2. Citizen Glenn Conner asked that the Council take a poll as to how they would likely vote on September 15, when the tax rate would be adopted. Aldermen Allan Hopson, Bryan Miiller and Todd Keller all stated that they wanted to see the effective tax rate of 39 cents, which would yield the same amount of revenue as the 41 cents tax rate from last year, due to an increase in property value.

Dear Editor, I want to read the TCEQ report Mayor Virdell keeps referencing. You know, the one where he claims that of 2000 water systems in Texas, Llano is 25th “most concerning” due to a single water source. Although fond of throwing around information supposedly from this report, he has not seen it. Since it appears to be the basis for his claim that we are in dire straits, it seems he would have a copy in hand to support his claims.

Bauman carried the ball on the first play from scrimmage and injured his right knee.
