Tomorrow night, the Board of Education is holding the first of three public hearings regarding the proposed 4.15 precent tax increase.

The millage will remain the same at 17.7, but reassesment of homes means higher taxes for many.

School board chairman C.W.Grant says the board decided not to roll back the millage because of its already diminished reserve fund.

The proposed tax increase will bring about $1.3 million dollars to the school system.

The first hearing is Monday night at six in the boardroom of the Dougherty County School System Administration Building.
