HPWD board approves 2009 ad valorem tax rate


The ad valorem tax rate for the High Plains Underground Water Conservation District No. 1 will not increase for tax year 2009.

At their Aug. 17 meeting, High Plains Water District board members approved a resolution adopting a 2009 ad valorem tax rate of $.00794 per $100 property valuation for operation and maintenance of the district. This same tax rate has been in effect since 2007.

For example, persons with $100,000 in property valuation pay $7.94 in taxes to the underground water conservation district under the 2009 rate.

"The Water District's board of directors believed it would be in their constituents' best interest to keep the 2009 tax rate unchanged from last year," said Manager Jim Conkwright. Even though the tax rate remains the same, Conkwright said some residents may see an increase in the amount of their water district tax because of higher property valuations in 2009."

The High Plains Underground Water Conservation District No. 1 was created in September 1951 by local residents and the Texas Legislature to conserve, preserve, protect, and prevent waste of underground water within a 15-county service area.
