Title

Consider a resolution nominating a representative for the Williamson Central Appraisal District Board of Directors.

 

 

Body

The Williamson Central Appraisal District (WCAD) is responsible for appraising property in the county at its market value for property taxation purposes. The 5-member board of directors sets policies for the WCAD and hired the Chief Appraiser. The board also approves the WCAD annual budget, which is funded by pro-rated assessments of the taxing entities in the county. The board also appoints the Appraisal Review Board, a quasi-independent group that hears and rules on property tax protests.

 

The WCAD Board of Directors are instrumental in development and maintaining an appraisal district that is well managed and fair to both individual tax payers and the entities that depend upon property tax revenue to fund local government operations. Staff recommends nominating Rufus Honeycutt for another two-year term. Mr. Honeycutt was first appointed to the board in 2011.

 

This resolution simply allows the City to submit its nomination which is due by October 15th. Staff will bring back another item to cast votes when that time comes.
