Taxable values up slightly for local taxing entities

The Franklin County Appraisal District released the certified tax rolls to local taxing entities last week.

The overall market value of property in Franklin County increased, about eight percent for Franklin County, Mount Vernon ISD, and the Water District, and three percent within the Mount Vernon City limits. For details on values each entity will use to set their annual budgets, see the July 30 edition of the Mount Vernon Optic-Herald.
