School board members approve tentative budget

June 11, 2007

Albany--  Dougherty County School Board members approved a tentative budget Monday night and it could mean a rollback in the millage rate.

The 126-millon dollar budget includes a 3-percent raise for teachers, bus drivers and Child Nutrition workers. Other employees will get a 1-percent cost of living increase.

The plan is to leave the millage rate of 19.894 the same but they based the budget on what they call conservative growth in the tax digest of 17 percent.

Once the final property appraisal numbers are in, the board may be able to lower the millage rate.

"At this point we're adding just over a half a million dollars to balance this and we're going to come back and revisit the millage rate and also pay raises when we know when the final digest numbers are which will be at the end of July," said Finance Director Robert Lloyd.  

Board members will take a final vote on the budget at the end of the month.
