The Bibb County Board of Education won’t raise taxes to meet a serious shortfall.
It’s not the right time to ask property owners to ante up more tax money, Bibb County school board members said as they tentatively adopted the system’s millage rate.
The board voted unanimously in a called meeting Thursday to keep the school system’s millage rate for fiscal 2011 at 17.9 mills, although doing so won’t generate all the money in property tax collections that board members initially were counting on.
They are going to add more furlough days. There are already 8. They’ll also consider giving pay raises to bureaucrats.
