Property tax meeting today
Cave Springs faces the possible loss of $391,000 out of a $1.7 million general fund budget. The city failed to reauthorize its property tax for 2017, according to city records, so the county cannot continue collecting that tax. Benton County Judge Barry Moehring will hold a county court meeting today to discuss the situation. Prosecutor Nathan Smith concluded in May an Arkansas State Police investigation concluded that month found no criminal intent in the failure to reauthorize the property tax.
