Millage Rate To Increase

For an average home value in Dade County with a value of $125,000 the one mill increase will amount to an annual tax increase of about $30.36.
The public will have an opportunity to address the Board regarding this millage increase at public hearings to be held at 11:30 a.m. on July 16; at 6 p.m. on July 16; and at 6 p.m. on July 23. The public hearings will be held at the Board of Education office at 52 Tradition Lane, Trenton.
