Published on: 6/5/2019

​The Board of Public Education for the City of Savannah and the County of Chatham has tentatively adopted a 2019 millage rate which will require an increase in property taxes by 3.27 percent. All concerned citizens are invited to the public hearings on this tax increase to be held at the Jessie Collier DeLoach Board Room of the Whitney Administrative Complex, 2 Laura Avenue, Savannah, Georgia on Wednesday, June 12, 2019 at 11:00 AM and 6:00 PM.

 

Times and places of additional public hearings on this tax increase are at the Jessie Collier DeLoach Board Room of the Whitney Administrative Complex, 2 Laura Avenue, Savannah, Georgia on Wednesday, June 19, 2019 at 6:00 PM.  This tentative increase will result in a millage rate of 18.881 mills, which is no increase in mills. Without this tentative tax increase, the millage rate will be no more than 18.284 mills. The proposed tax increase for a home with a fair market value of $187,500 is approximately $44.78 and the proposed tax increase for non-homestead property with a fair market value of $250,000 is approximately $59.70.

 

The 2019-20 Budget will serve as the key operating plan for the school district that now serves more than 37,000 students. This budget will continue the district’s focus to deliver high quality educational services where all children are learning at high levels.

All concerned citizens are invited to the public hearings on this tax increase. Should any citizen like to be placed on the public hearing agenda to comment on the tentative millage rate, please call the Board Office at (912) 395-5534 or email Mary.Davis-
