Will Voters Continue The One Mill?
Some say it's just a band-aid, but nevertheless, its one that's in the hands of Alachua County voters.
The school board approved a one mill property tax renewal proposal for the November ballot.
One mill is equal to one dollar for every one thousand dollars of a property's taxable value.
According to board member Gunnar Paulson, the program has been generating about 12 million dollars a year, ever since it was passed by voters in 2008, but it expires in June 2013.
"We would lose 160 teachers in our district, when you're talking about a district with less than 2,000 teachers, that's major," he said.
