At a July 26 called meeting, the Carroll County Board of Education voted to set the tentative millage rate at the current rate of 17.5 mills. This tentative rate will allow the board to further examine district needs and garner taxpayer input at three public meetings before setting a final millage rate for 2023.
Maintaining this same millage rate would result in more property tax revenue due to an increase in property values, as shown in recent assessment notices sent by the Carroll County Board of Tax Assessors. Public hearings are required any time more property tax revenue will be collected over the previous year due to property reassessments.
This tentative millage rate will be finalized at the August 21 monthly board meeting.
