The Trimble County Public Library is holding a public hearing for setting at 9 a.m. Thursday, Sept. 3.
Board of Trustees President Steve Tharp said the board has opted to take the 4 percent tax hike allowed by the state. The increase will bring the tax to 11 cents per $100 of assessed value of real property.
The hike will generate $399,835, up from the 10-cent rate of 2008-09, which was anticipated to bring in $355,383. The additional funding will help meet rising costs of books, library materials, technology and building maintenance.
