Doctor Lauren Swartz joins LHC Family Medicine staff

By JOE GONZALES

Doctor Lauren Swartz, the newest doctor at LHC Family Medicine Clinic is happy to be here, because this is something she’s always wanted to do.

“I’ve always wanted to practice rural medicine,” said Dr. Swartz.

“I grew up in Lubbock, so I’m a West Texas native. And I grew up around the agriculture community.

So being able to live and work in a rural setting has always appealed to me.”

Swartz said that’s why rural clinics were on her list when looking somewhere to practice family medicine, plus woman’s health and obstetrics.

“I was looking for a place where I could do that...and Littlefield was the best fit for me,” she said.

Littlefield City Council adopts proposed tax rate

By JOE GONZALES

Tuesday night, the Littlefield City Council met for a regular meeting inside their chambers.

Once again, the council handled a lengthy agenda.

Among the agenda items was the council to consider and approve a proposed tax rate for the 2018-2019 fiscal year budget. Littlefield City Manager asked the council to approve a proposed tax rate.

The tax rate the city used last year, and what they used this year to help develop the proposed budget was $0.757600 per $100 of property valuation. The effective tax rate, which was the theoretical rate used to generate the same revenue as the year before is $0.763500. Grant said the effective rate was higher because the total valuation went down.

The second rate would generate $9,440 more than adopting the same rate as last year.
