The Weatherford College Board of Trustees approved the 2018-19 budget and tax rate during a special called meeting Thursday afternoon.
The budget for the new fiscal year totals $56.6 million, and the tax rate is 11.947 cents per $100 valuation. Both items were approved unanimously by the board.
With the official vote, the board has reduced the tax rate in three out of the past four years.
Following the vote, board member Roger Grizzard commented, “WC is one of the most cost effective community colleges in the state of Texas.”
