Albany -- Dougherty County homeowners get a small tax break. The Dougherty County school board voted last night to lower the millage rate slightly from 19 to 18.98 mils.
Dougherty County didn't raise property taxes either but if your home was reevaluated this year for a higher price, your taxes could still go up.
Also tonight, WALB is co-sponsoring a forum for the candidates for Dougherty County school board. The forum is from 7PM to 8PM tonight at the government center on Pine Avenue. Each candidate will give a two minute introduction and answer questions from the media.
Here's a list of the school board candidates:
In District 2, Yaz Johnson is challenging incumbent Milton "June Bug" Griffin.
For District 4, incumbent Emily Jean McAfee faces Jack Stone, Jr.
Dean T. Phinazee is running against incumbent Michael Windom for School Board District 6.
