Aldermen lower proposed tax

September 4, 2013

Starkville’s Board of Aldermen backed off its original proposal for a 2.78-mil ad valorem tax increase for fiscal year 2014, instead proposing a 1.98-mil increase during its regular meeting Tuesday at City Hall.

The board voted 4-2 in favor of modifying the proposed tax increase, with Ward 6 Alderman Roy A. Perkins and Ward 7 Alderman Henry Vaughn opposed. Ward 1 Alderman Ben Carver recused himself from voting after participating in discussion on the motion. The modified increase would bring the city’s total operating ad valorem millage to 21.98, and the board scheduled a public hearing on the increase and the proposed budget for 5:30 p.m. Sept. 17.
