  1. Mr. McGee moved, seconded by Mr. Day, that (excluding Palestine ISD) – Public hearings be held on Monday, August 25 at 7:30 p.m. and Monday, September 8, at 6:30 p.m. in the Board Room of the Orval Pirtle Administration Building on the Athens campus to consider a proposal to adopt the tax rate of 10.36 cents per $100.  For the branch campus maintenance tax district (Palestine ISD only) - because 5.0 cents per $100 does not exceed either the effective rate or the rollback rate, public hearings are not required and will not be held.  5.0 cents per $100 is the rate cap per the Branch Campus Maintenance Tax Agreement.
