Possible Property Tax Increase In Montague County

A tax increase in Montague County is one step closer to becoming reality.

Wednesday County Commissioner's held the second of two public hearings on the increase of two cents.

Right now, the tax rate sits at 43 cents and they're looking at raising it to 45 cents per every $100 in property value.

Final adoption of the tax rate and proposed budget are planned for September 16th.
