County Judge Dean Crooks has posted the proposed 2019 Orange County budget online on the county’s website.

A quick link is http://www.co.orange.tx.us/countyclerk/pdf/budget_2018-2019_proposed.pdf

The link can also be accessed by going to the county website front page at www.co.orange.tx.us, clicking on the county offices tab, then clicking on County Clerk. A PDF file to read online or download is at the bottom left of the County Clerk main page.

This budget is only a starting point for ongoing deliberations by Commissioners’ Court to arrive at the Fiscal Year 2019 budget that goes into effect Oct. 1. The proposed budget assumed no change in the current ad valorem tax rate of 54.2 cents per $100 value.
