The Jackson County Board of Education voted 4-1 Monday night to hike its operations millage rate to 19.276 mills, up from 18.9 mills last year. The BOE also voted to keep the system’s bond millage rate the same as last year at 3.1 mills.
Board member Tim Brooks was the only no vote on the millage hike. All three school systems in Jackson County are raising their millage rates this year. The board will vote to amend its budget Thursday night to reflect the new millage rate.
