GRADY COUNTY, GA (WALB) -

Monday night's Grady School Board millage rate vote was 3-2 in favor of not raising the millage rate, so it will stay at 14.2. The superintendent wanted to raise it to 14.4 mils.

Superintendent Lee Bailey says even with the increase, the system would still bring in less revenue this year than last year.

Taxpayers we spoke with are split on the issue.

"I do agree that the money they are spending should go toward our youth and education and infrastructure and stuff like that, but another tax, more money, I don't see that happening. I don't agree with that," said Grady County Resident Bryan Donley.

About 54% of Grady County property tax revenue is used for education.
