No Tax Rate Increase

Pike County Schools’ Board of Education unanimously voted not to increase its tax rate, citing the community’s ongoing financial struggles due to the COVID-19 pandemic as the primary reason.During a special-called board meeting on Oct. 20, the board met to vote on whether to continue the current tax rate or to approve a compensating tax rate, which would have increased the rate by 5.3 cents per every $100 of assessed value. Pike County’s current tax rate is 88.7 cents per every $100 of assessed value.
