 Public Hearing to Set Tax Levies


The Callaway County Commission hosted a Public Hearing to set the 2017 tax levy rates. Kathie Ratliff was also present for this meeting to represent the County Clerk’s office. Western District Commissioner Roger Fischer was not present for this meeting.

Commissioner Jungermann began by explaining how the tax levy rates are produced. First, the County Assessor assesses the value of real estate property within the County. The County Clerk then reports those assessed valuation figures to the State Auditor’s office. Next, the State Auditor’s office sends the County notice of what its levy rates should be based on the assessed valuation that was reported. Finally, it is the County Commission’s job to set, or adopt, the levy rates given by the State Auditor’s office.

According to the State Auditor’s office the 2017 Road & Bridge tax levy for Callaway County should be 0.2603 and the 2017 General Revenue tax levy for Callaway County should be 0.3362. Last year, the Road & Bridge levy rate was 0.2607 and the General Revenue levy rate was 0.3368. Both rates have decreased from 2016 to 2017.

Eastern District Commissioner Randy Kleindienst made a motion to set the tax levy rate for General Revenue at 0.3362 and for Road & Bridge at 0.2603 for the 2017 tax year, according to the figures reported by the State Auditor’s office, and to authorize Presiding Commissioner Gary Jungermann to sign on behalf of the County.

Presiding Commissioner Gary Jungermann seconded the motion.

All in favor.., ayes have it. Court Order #87 — signed.
