From the Desk of 
Brent Greer, Henry County Mayor

December 2014

As we approach the holiday season, I want to thank the citizens of Henry County who make this such a wonderful community to live in.

The second quarter of the fiscal year has shown some improvement on the economic front. Sales tax collection have leveled off and we have seen a slight growth in revenues.  The Henry County Commission along with the Paris Commission and the respective school boards are having discussion concerning a potential sales tax referendum to be considered by the County Commission on first reading during the December 15th meeting.  A public hearing will precede this meeting.  The Commission will have to schedule a second reading in January if the resolution successfully passes in the December Commission meeting.

The economic development front continues to improve with the positive growth on Mineral Wells Avenue.  Also several local industries are seriously considering expansion and possibly building new facilities.  We expect these decisions to become more concrete in the first quarter of 2015.

 I would like to take this opportunity to wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
