SPANISH FORT, Ala. (WKRG) — The group Invest in Our Community Spanish Fort is hosting a town hall style meeting Wednesday evening to inform voters about the proposed 3-mill property tax that would provide more funding to schools in the Spanish Fort feeder community.
Below you can find our web extra video of officials answering questions from residents.
The tax would generate about $800,000 for academic and life-enhancement programs at the schools. It would cost residents $30 per $100,000 value of their homes. So a family with a $200,000 home would pay an increased $60 in property taxes per year. The plan would also sunset after 10 years.
The vote on the property tax will take place Tuesday, Sept. 17.
City officials have revised the original proposal and will discuss it Wednesday evening round-table style at City Hall.
