Hall County Schools employee raises scaled back in latest budget proposal
Tax digest may not increase as much as expected
Placeholder Image
Hall County’s tax digest may increase only 2 percent — instead of the 3 percent school officials used to estimate property tax revenue — and raises for employees have been scaled back from 3 percent to 2.5 percent. The draft school budget for fiscal year 2017 would require $4.3 million from the reserve fund. The school district would spend about $1.2 million less with the revised budget — $226.9 million versus $228.1 million.
