Central Health to propose tax rate to county

Tuesday, August 26, 2014 by Beth Cortez-Neavel

Central Health, Travis County’s health care district, will bring its proposed Fiscal Year 2015 budget of $270.8 million to Commissioners Court today. The district will also present its proposed 12.64-cent tax rate, which is lower than last year’s 12.9- cent rate. Central Health’s Board of Managers is in charge of adopting a budget each year, but the county is responsible for approving its tax rate. Central Health works to provide health care to low-income Travis County residents and operates the University Medical Center-Brackenridge Hospital and Trauma Center.
