Board of Education to keep same millage rate
bryan county schools Bigger

The Bryan County School Board won’t raise its millage rate of 15.075 this year, but it won’t lower it, either, despite a booming local economy that’s led to 8 percent growth in the tax digest.

Keeping the millage rate the same equates to an increase in school taxes of about $29.32 for a $200,000 home, according to the school system. 

Under Georgia law, a system has to either adopt a rollback millage rate -- Bryan County’s is calculated at 14.699 - or consider it a property tax increase and hold public hearings. 

The first two hearings are at 11 a.m. and 6 p.m. July 11 in Black Creek. A third is set for 5 p.m. in Richmond Hill.
