  6. Oktibbeha Co. school mill value risesRead the original story

    Friday Jul 22 | Commercial Dispatch

Officials are expected to ask the Oktibbeha County Board of Supervisors to keep the school tax rate -- a combined 66.05 mills -- level once the levying authority sets its budget in September, but an increase in the county's assessment evaluation means the district will receive roughly an extra $842,000 for operations, $157,000 for debt service and $15,700 to support the Millsaps Career and Technology Center.
