GLOBE — The Gila County Provisional Community College District (GCPCCD) is considering a slightly lower tax rate for the 2024 budget year. The reduced tax rate is made possible because the overall assessed value of property in Gila County has continued to increase over the past few years, having a net effect of providing additional revenue for higher education in Gila County. The GCPCCD Governing Board will make a final decision at its June board meeting.

Because the assessed property value has increased county-wide, the tax rate will drop from .9425 to .9177. Because the reduced rate will generate additional funds, statutory language refers to this as a tax increase, when in fact it is a tax rate reduction.

“The Gila County Provisional Community College District currently contracts with Eastern Arizona College to provide educational services at our Gila Pueblo and Payson campuses,” said GCPCCD President Dr. Janet Brocker. “This additional funding adds more value, allowing us to continue furthering educational opportunities for Gila County residents.”
