Real property taxes for LaRue Countians will remain about the same as last year as LaRue County Fiscal Court approved the compensating rate during a meeting at the courthouse in Hodgenville Sept. 11.
The rate was set at 18.7 cents per $100 of assessed value.
“I believe this is the third straight year we’ve chosen the compensating rate,” said Tommy Turner, judge-executive. “This rate produces an amount of revenue approximately equal to that produced in the preceding year from real property.”
The county is still experiencing a large number of missing road signs according to David Wood, assistant county road supervisor. He said several signs have disappeared from the Barren Run area.
Road crews replaced tiles on Pepper, Gray, Middle Creek, Weldon Loop and Cissell Hill roads and Airline Drive; filled potholes on Airline Drive and Miller, McDowell and Ferrill Hill roads; removed trees felled by the recent storms on George Lee, Dan Dunn-River and Cissell Hill roads and filled in washed out areas on Wayne Ennis Road.
