Schools retain millage rate for fifth year

The Lamar County board of education last week set the school millage rate at 15.8, the same rate that has been in effect for five years, despite a drop in the county tax digest. Superintendent Dr. Bill Truby explained the millage will not change ‘because we factored in the reduction in the digest.’ The budget is anticipated at about $19.3 million, he said. Board members were given a copy of the resolution for Special Local Option Sales Tax to be voted on Nov. 8. Truby said the funds are necessary to help re-pay the debt for the middle and elementary schools, Fine Arts Center, stadium and improvements at the high school.
