NOTICE OF PROPERTY TAX INCREASE
The Franklin County Board of Education has tentatively adopted a millage rate, which will require an increase in property taxes by 10.52 percent.
All concerned citizens are invited to the public hearings on this tax increase to be held at the Board of Education Administrative Offices, 280 Busha Road, Carnesville, GA on July 10, 2014 at 11:30 a.m. and 6:00 p.m.
Times and places of additional public hearings on this tax increase are at the Board of Education Administrative Offices, 280 Busha Road, Carnesville, GA on July 17, 2014 at 5:00 p.m.
This tentative increase will result in a millage rate of 18.618 mills, an increase of 1.75 mills. Without this tentative tax increase, the millage rate will be no more than 16.914 mills. The proposed tax increase for a home with a fair market value of $100,000 is approximately $66.50 and the proposed tax increase for non-homestead property with a fair market value of $75,000 is approximately $52.50.
Beginning with the 2014-2015 school year, all students born on or after January 1, 2002, and entering or transferring into seventh grade in Georgia, must receive a tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis (whooping cough) booster vaccination (Tdap) and an adolescent meningococcal vaccination (MCV4). The same applies for any students new to Georgia who are entering grades eight through twelve. This law affects all public and private schools including charter schools, community schools, juvenile court schools and other alternative school settings (excluding homeschool).
