Volume 28, No. 180 Wednesday, September 18, 2013


LISD Tax Election: Liberty school district will hold a Tax Ratification Election on Saturday, October 12. To capture additional state funds, Liberty school trustees are asking voters to approve a two-cent increase in the maintenance and operations tax rate. In return, the board already approved a reduction of the debt service tax rate. So, if voters approve the proposed change, the overall tax rate would actually decrease slightly. The total property taxes for 2012-13 are $1.1711 per $100 valuation. The new tax rate would be $1.1686. That change would generate about $331,000 in new money from local and state coffers for the M&O side of the district’s budget. Those dollars would be used to give Liberty school district staff a one-time payment that is the equivalent of about a 3 percent cost-of-living adjustment.


Social Security: Social Security is continuing to add new and improved services to beneficiaries on line. Kim Richard of the Beaumont Office of Social Security said the website has recently undergone a complete revision, to make using it even easier. Always be sure to go to the www.socialsecurity.govwebsite to avoid bogus sites that use a similar name, but are not affiliated with the agency. You can also call the Social Security at the Beaumont District Office toll free, that number is 866 613 2864or toll free nationwide at 800 772 1213.


National Night Out: The Liberty Police Department will hold their community national night out on Tuesday October 1, at the Liberty City Park.  They have a very special evening planned with several activities and it’s all free. The event will be held from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. on October 1st, it’s free to the public but officials with the police department did tell us help is needed to pay the cost for the hotdogs and water. If you can help, call the Liberty Police Department at (936) 336 5666. Ask for Officer Liz Polosek. A long list of activities will be announced soon.
