FORREST COUNTY, Miss. - The Forrest County Agricultural High School District (FCAHS) is asking the Forrest County Board of Supervisors for a 4% increase in its millage, according to Board President David Hogan.
Hogan said during a board meeting on Tuesday the district business manager Stephen May requested a tax increase during a budget presentation.
The 4% increase would raise taxes on a $100,000 house by around $10. "I want to honor everyone's request, without increasing millage" said Hogan.
The board has to approve the FCAHS request. Hogan said it will set the millage when the board gets the request end of August or early September.
