Tax hike for Columbia School district uncertain

COLUMBIA, MS. -  It is uncertain whether the Columbia School District will increase the millage rate for fiscal year 2010-2011, which begins July 1.A public hearing on the School District's 2010-2011 budget will be held Thursday at 5 p.m. at the CSD office on Bryan Avenue.

School District Business Manager Kim Rogers said until her office receives new property values and new assessed values from the Tax Assessor's Office it will be unclear whether there will be a millage increase. Rogers said she hopes to have those figures from the Tax Assessor shortly after July 1.
