Robertson County hosts public hearing over its proposed budget

Perhaps the County has become accustomed to tax increases as mineral values continue their decline. Though the proposed tax increase to cover the 2016- 2017 is much less than the highest estimates, the property owners of Robertson County will still face a probable two cent increase in taxes in January--from .475 to .495 on every $100 valuation--to support this year’s proposed budget.
