Archer County 2012 Budget Approved

Archer County Commissioners approved the county budget late Monday morning after a public hearing.
Judge Gary Beesinger said the effective tax rate for 2012 will be lower than this year's, due to an increase in oil, gas and real estate values.
The tax rate will be down nearly $0.03 in the 20-12 budget, which will also include a 10% pay increase for all county employees.
