The new millage rate for Pike County schools will likely bring smiles to local taxpayers. The board of education established the millage rate at a brief meeting Thursday, Aug. 27.
“The millage rate is less than last year,” financial director Kenneth Carter said. “The dollars generated by these rates are the very same as last year.”
Total taxes levied are $7,167,630, the same amount levied for 2008. The net total millage rate set by the board for 2008 was 14.518.
