Another Tax? Why does the school board even bother to hold a "public meeting" to "Discuss" another tax hike when they don't pay a bit of attention to anyone who attends. They've already decided to raise it, and wouldn't change their minds if everyone in attendance (those that bother to attend) said, "NO!" When is everyone in this county going to wake up and STOP ALLOWING FRIVOLOUS SPENDING TO CONTINUE??? THEY DON'T NEED ANOTHER SCHOOL TO BE BUILT!

Property tax is not a 17% increase, however an increase of 17 cents per $100 dollars owed. It is a much needed increase in order to begin new construction and renovation. Marshall county's property tax is still lower than surrounding counties (even with increase). It is a good thing, and in the best interest of the community. At least Marshall doesn't rush through things like McCracken and has a solid long term plan.

Everything's going up except wages. Won't be long before people start rebelling. I am looking forward to that time.

"40.2 cents on real and personal property to 47.1 cents per $100 of assessed property." Shappy:

Today's basic math lesson: 47.1 minus 40.2 equals? 6.9 Now, take 6.9 and divide it by 40.2 and what do you get? 0.1716417910447761. Looks like 17% to me. Check it:.40 * 1.17 equals 0.47034 AND NO NO NO! MC'S TAXES ARE NOT THE LOWEST AROUND!!! Shappy--you must be part of the school board.
