No county budget vote until after Aug. election

-A A +A
By Damon Lawrence

The 2014 county election could serve as a referendum on higher taxes for education.

Last year the Roane County Board of Education requested a 14-cent increase in the property tax rate to fund the school system’s 2013-14 budget.

The Roane County Commission did not approve the rate hike.

If the school board makes another request for an increase this year, Roane County Executive Ron Woody said a vote on the 2014-15 county budget may not happen until after the Aug. 7 election.
