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.
