Members of the La Grange City Council heard the first reading of the proposed ad valorem tax rate at their meeting Monday. 

The proposed tax rate is 22 cents per $100 of real property and 26 cents per $100 of personal property. According to the ordinance, if passed, any resident who pays the tax bill before Oct. 20 would receive a 2-percent discount and any bill paid after Nov. 20 will be subject to a 10-percent penalty.

The second reading of the ordinance will take place at the council’s next meeting, Sept. 7.
