In each case, these rates are calculated by dividing the total amount of taxes by the current taxable value with adjustments as required by state law. The rates are given per $100 of property value.

  • New Year…Brighter days…

    By MARK MYERS, Lavaca County Judge

    Well, 2022 has arrived and with it the hope of even brighter days ahead.  

    In the last meeting of your Commissioner’s Court, we revisited the question of providing vital air medical services through PHI to every county resident for a total cost of less than $60,000.00 per year ($7.00 per household)The cost of this service was planned for and budgeted as an expense this budget year.  This service would have eliminated any out-of-pocket cost to anyone who has insurance that covers this service and would provide for free air transport to anyone who is uninsured.  Otherwise, the cost of a flight to a level 1 trauma center is around $40,000.00 or more per flight.  This is a huge expense for anyone unlucky enough to get strapped with this bill.  This contract would have relieved that burden and kept that $40,000 in your pocket and in Lavaca County.  Further, the contract is an annual one so, if at anytime we as a county feel that we are not being served well, we can simply not renew.  

      

    I see this as an obligation that we have to the people to provide the very best emergency care and public safety that we can.  It is an enhancement to the EMS services that we already provide.  As most of you are already aware, it is my opinion that public safety is a paramount responsibility of your government.  We as county employees enjoy the benefits of free air medical coverage and I believe that you should too.  My motion to accept the PHI contract went without a second so, no further action could be taken at this time.  I tried.

      

    I would like to also bring your attention to the fact that we have some employment opportunities that are available at this time.  If you are interested, be sure and check our website at co.lavaca.tx.us for more information.  Also, you may find other information and announcements that may be of interest to you.  

      

    As we welcome in the new year, I just want to say please stay safe and remember to take the steps that are necessary to protect you and yours from sickness.  

    I remain forever thankful for allowing me to serve as your County Judge.  It is still my greatest honor to do so.  May God protect those who protect us and may God Bless and Keep you and yours always.

      

    In your service,

    Mark Myers

    Lavaca County Judge
