Both Pike County commissioners and the school board will increase millage rates due in part to decreasing property values in the area. Commissioners will increase the property taxes by 10.83% over the rollback millage rate and the school board will increase taxes by 1.55% over the rollback rate.
DOES PIKE COUNTY NOT KNOW THAT PEOPLE ON SOCIAL SECURITY CANNOT AFFORD TO PAY HIGHER TAXES.WOULD MR. HANSON CONSIDER TAKING A PAY CUT AND LIVE OFF S.S AND HAVE TO PAY FOR HIS OWN INSURANCE I'LL BET NOT. MR. DUNCAN WOULD YOU ALSO CONSIDER THE SAME DEAL. WOULD YOU CONSIDER CUTTING OUT SOME OF YOUR FOOTBALL COACHES I WOULD BET NOT. WE HAVE PUT 2 CHILDREN AND THREE GRANDCHILDREN THROUGH THIS SCHOOL SYSTEM AND MY WAY OF THINKING IS AT AGE 65 WE SHOULD NOT HAVE TO PAY SCHOOL TAXES.YOU 2 PEOPLE AND THE OTHER COMMISONERS SHOULD LEARN TO BUDGET YOUR MONEY BETTER OH MR. HANSON HAVE YOU BEEN ON BLANTON MILL RD. LATELY IT NEEDS ALL THESE TAX DOLLARS YOU WANT TO SPEND.
