In a specially called session Friday morning, the Carter County Commission voted to override both of County Mayor Leon Humphrey’s vetoes regarding the tax rate and the upcoming budget.

With the tax rate and budget now confirmed by the commission, the property tax rate will rise to $2.33 for every $100 of a property’s value, with 15 cents allocated for the General Fund and 3 cents added to the Debt Service Fund.
