On Tuesday, February 24, 2015 at 10:00 A.M., in a regular meeting at the Socorro County Annex, 198 Neel Socorro, NM 87801, the Board of County Commissioners of Socorro County will conduct a public hearing for the purpose of discussing the adoption of Ordinance 2015-002 an Ordinance Authorizing a Property Tax Rebate to Benefit Low-Income Taxpayers. New Mexico law requires that this Ordinance be considered every other year by the Board of County Commissioners, due budgetary constraints the Ordinance has never been adopted by the Board. The purpose of the Ordinance is to provide a property tax rebate for low income residence and were this Ordinance to be passed, the County would be required to pay the amount of the loss of income tax revenue to the state for the previous taxable year attributable to the allowance of property tax rebates to taxpayers of Socorro County.
Copies of the proposed Ordinance are available for the public to view free of charge below or at the County Clerk’s Office or the County Manager's Office, 201 Park Street, Socorro, NM. Copies of the proposed Ordinance may be purchased by the public from either office for $1.05.
