Dougherty County School system get less than expected

Albany -- A delay is property tax payments is having a major impact on the finances of the Dougherty County School System.

By this time last year the system already had about eight million dollars in property tax revenue.

Monday, school leaders got their first check from Dougherty County tax office, and it was only for a little more than a million dollars.

"We are watching our cash flow. We may delay a few payments by a few days just to make sure that we maintain our balance at the bank. It's just the December cash flow problems and most people will pay their tax bills before the 31st of December so that they can claim tax relief with the IRS," said Executive Director of Business Operations, Robert Lloyd Cross. 

The delay in payment to the Dougherty County School System is because of the revaluation and appeals process that pushed back the deadline to pay your property taxes by a month.
