A second round of tax bills, these with only the 2013 hospital tax, are expected to be in the mail in a matter of days. Hospital taxes on Motor Vehicles and Water Craft will be collected starting January 1, 2014

By Ed Waggener

The bills for real and tangible property are based on the assessed valuation as of January 1, 2013, and will be mailed as soon they they are calculated, the bills can be printed, and the sheriff can get them into the mail. Taxes on motor vehicles and watercraft will be collected as licenses are renewed in the county court clerk's office starting January 1, 2014.

Under the agreed Court Order, the Board was mandated to implement the 10 cents/$100 rate. The rate could have been much higher, but Vice Chairman Neal Gold said that the Board wanted to make the burden on taxpayers as little as possible.

A little life vignette shows safety consciousness of AC bus drivers

By Carol S. Myers

I observed a very interesting situation yesterday. While in the front office at Adair County Elementary, two bus drivers radioed the school. They would not allow students at two different locations to exit their buses until there was an adult present. The parents were contacted to inform them about the situations. One bus driver waited until the parent arrived, and the other agreed to meet the parent at a location along his route. I think this shows how much the bus drivers in Adair County care about the safety of students. I was truly impressed. - Carol S. Myers, Curriculum Resource Teacher, Adair County Schools, Columbia, KY

Thanks, Maury - It appears the tax may be around for at least several years. More details will be posted on CM as learned. The Special Called Meeting at Westlake at 3pmCT, today, will set the tax rate of at least 10 cents/$100 - a benchmark is that $100,000 assessed valuation would be $100 per year at that rate. - Stay in touch.
