LAMPASAS — Voters will decide Tuesday the fate of a proposed tax freeze for senior citizens. The tax freeze would benefit 14.7 percent of Lampasas County residents who are in the 65-and-older tax bracket.

Earlier this summer, County Auditor Chris Munn told officials the county could lose as much as $1.2 million in the next seven years if the item is passed. Many older adults favor the proposal, citing fixed incomes and their days of wage-earning long behind them. Some county officials, however, expressed concern that a freeze would place too large a burden on younger families struggling to survive in today’s economy.
