Lubbock Hospital District Requests 8% Tax Increase

County commissioners are also set to consider two tax increases.

The county is proposing a two cent tax increase to help budget the increased costs of the new jail and Monday, the hospital district requested an eight percent tax increase. If you own a $100,000 house, that's an annual increase of about $9 a year.

Despite the increase, University Medical Center CEO David Allison says Lubbock has the lowest hospital district rate of the larger cities in the state.

"The hospital district in Lubbock has about 11 cent per $100 valuation, other districts in and around the state are about 30 cents," said Allison.

These rates aren't final. There will be three public hearings before a vote. The first is August 27th at 11 a.m. in the Lubbock County Commissioner's Court.
