Barren County Board of Ed votes for raise in taxes

GLASGOW — Difficult times will result in higher real and personal property taxes for residents who live within the Barren County School District.

Board members voted and approved a motion to increase taxes by 2.1 cents per $100 for assessed value for property, also referred to as Subsection (1), the same option that was approved for the 2008-09 school year, during a public hearing and special-called meeting Monday night at the central office.

The increase brings the rate to 58.9 cents per $100 dollars of assessed property.

The new rate will generate approximately $6.9 million in revenue for real property and $953,430 in personal property.

The owner of a $100,000 home will pay $589 in taxes.

The utility tax rate will remain at 3 percent — the same amount as the 2010 and 2011 school years.

Superintendent Bo Matthews said one item that will remain unchanged is the tax rate on all motor vehicles and watercraft.
