It’s August so you know what that means....we as journalists will get our annual dose of numbers as we report on proposed tax rates and budgets of area taxing entities.

This is the time of year we keep our calculators in working order and keep our Advil close at hand so when our brains start hurting trying to understand numbers and making sure the percentages match the dollars.

Victoria school district has already started with the number crunch.

On Tuesday we cover the Victoria city council as they begin the budget/tax process.

Then on Wednesday the Victoria commissioners court starts their workshops.

Many entities in our area are already deep into the discussions.

Stay tuned as we report the numbers and make them make sense to you.
