Roane County Executive Ron Woody has expressed concerns that an increase in the county’s property tax rate could hurt its chances to recruit industry.
The rate is currently $2.18 per $100 valuation.
The rate could rise this year with the school system facing a budget shortfall.
At the same time, school and county officials are looking to beef up security at the schools.
“These two situations alone could require a potential tax increase approaching 25 percent if all other program support remains constant,” Woody wrote in a recent column.
