  • Board approves increased tax rate

    The Marion County Board of Education voted to increase its property tax rate from 53.8 cents per $100 valuation to 55 cents. The board unanimously approved the rate change at its Aug. 27 meeting, which followed a public hearing on the proposed rate change.
    The 55 cents per $100 rate is considered the 4 percent rate by the state because it generates 4 percent more revenue than the previous year’s rate, excluding new property.
