MCSD discusses levy tax at work session

(WTVM) - The Muscogee County School Board gathered Monday night to discuss a levy tax, which is aimed at providing more resources for students

The board says the district has experienced an increase in enrollment and the tax could help restore funds after a shortfall.

Not everyone agrees with the property tax, however.

Some are against, saying citizens just voted on SPLOST tax.

"I feel like public deserves a break right now," said Mark Cantrell. "I think it will help us out, it is good for business and good for homeowners in Columbus."

Monday's meeting was the first public hearing for the millage levy. The next meeting is scheduled for May 18 at 6 p.m.
