BOE prefers mill rollback

After advertising tax digest, school board expected to roll back millage rate

Because of an increase in the county’s tax digest in the coming year, Elbert County’s Board of Education voted last week to roll back its millage rate.

According to figures presented to the school board by BOE Chief Financial Officer Keith Martin, the gross digest in Elbert County has jumped from $582,536,885 in 2017 to $641,778,798 in 2018.

The resulting county growth will allow the school board to drop its millage rate from 16.942 mills to 15.870 mills to produce comparable revenues in the coming school year.
