SCCPSS to hold final public millage rate hearing

Posted: Updated:
CHATHAM CO., GA (WTOC) -

The Savannah-Chatham County School Board is hosting its third and final public meeting about the tax rate on Wednesday. 

At public hearings last week, school officials announced that they are planning to keep the school property tax rate the same in the next fiscal year.

But the sum of all Chatham County's properties is worth more than last year, so keeping the millage rate the same will reap an additional $3.5 million for schools. 

In addition to the public meeting, a vote on the tax rate is also scheduled for Wednesday. 

The meeting will begin at 6:30 p.m. at the Whitney Administrative Complex on Laura Avenue in Savannah.
