The Shelby County Fiscal Court met in a special called meeting Thursday, setting the county tax rate at 11 cents per $100 dollars.
The meeting followed a public hearing that was called at 8:30 a.m. but no one from the public showed up.
Shelby County Judge-Executive Rob Rothenburger told magistrates he recommended that the tax rate stay the same as last year.
“This has been reviewed by the finance committee, and I’d like to recommend the exact same number as the year before,” he said.
The vote was unanimous, at 5-0.
