Gainesville school board approves rate that will hike taxes for some
Gainesville School Board Office
Nearly three months after adopting a $70.1 million budget, the Gainesville City School System board approved a tax rate Wednesday for the 2017-18 school year to pay for those expenditures. The board voted 4-1 to keep the tax rate at the same 6.85 mills as it was a year ago. The millage rate equals $1 of taxes on every $1,000 of taxable value.
