Commissioners to postpone tax collection discussion

Tuesday’s agenda for the regular meeting of the Commissioners Court includes a discussion with Tax Assessor-Collector Teresa McCoy about ongoing issues with her office’s collection of county property taxes. However, Precinct 4 Commissioner Steve Berry said just before the start of the meeting that McCoy had asked Monday evening for the matter to be pulled from the agenda due to a conflict. He also stated that, since a two-hour workshop on the situation had been set for 10 a.m. Wednesday, it made more sense to simply hash out the issues at that time rather than engage in two lengthy discussions. Wednesday’s meeting will be in the second floor courtroom at the courthouse on the square. The public can attend.
