I am one of those who believes we should take whatever steps that are necessary to keep our Roane County schools well funded.
If that means a property tax hike, I’m all for it.
The county property tax on our house is currently $714 per year. A large tax hike, say 10 percent, would cost us only another $71.
I don’t think that would put us in the poor house. That’s a piddling amount of money, about what it would cost a couple to go out to eat and go to a movie in Knoxville.
