Missouri Disabilities Board's Funds Slashed

JACKSON, Mo. -- After weeks of threatening to eliminate it for a year, the Cape Girardeau County Commission on Thursday cut a tax levy in half that funds the area's board for developmental disabilities.
On a 2-1 vote, the commission opted for a tax rate of .0385 cents per $100 assessed valuation, which will bring in about $435,000 over the next 12 months. The former rate of .077, which stood for years, had generated $870,000 annually for the board.
