The Jefferson County school board voted unanimously Aug. 21 to ask voters for a 4.4-mill increase in property taxes and a $350 million bond issue in the Nov. 4 election to pay for more teachers, upkeep, buildings and technology upgrades.
The mill levy is expected to cost taxpayers an extra $2.92 a month per $100,000 of assessed valuation. The bond issue is to replace the level of borrowing that is in already in place as that is paid off, and it will not result in a tax increase.
The proposal could be a tough sell in view of the declining economic climate.
