Board of Education votes to lower millage rate

Jul 22 2022

The Carroll County School Board voted to lower the 2022 millage rate for Carroll County taxpayers to 17.500 from 17.998 at its July 21 board meeting. The tentative rate will be finalized at the August 18 monthly board meeting after the board holds three public meetings for taxpayer input. Lowering the millage rate will save the average Carroll County homeowner about $42 per year compared to leaving the millage rate at 17.998.

“We are pleased to be able to lower the millage rate for the first time since 2017,” board chairman Bryant Turner said. “Property owners across the county are dealing with new tax assessments. We believe this rollback takes into account the needs of children in our community while also acknowledging the burden on local taxpayers.”

Hearings for public input will be August 4 at noon, August 15 at 5:30 p.m. and August 18 at 6:30 p.m.
