Tax Revenue Conitnues to Benefit Local Schools
Tax revenue continues to improve in Carroll County, and both local school systems are seeing the benefits.
Carrollton City Schools Superintendent Kent Edwards told the school board Tuesday night that the local option sales tax collections have seen another increase in the past month, and have vastly outdistanced collections at this time last year.
“There has been another uptick of SPLOST revenue, especially when compared to last year this month, it’s upwards of $60,000,” he said.
At the board’s regular work session last week, Assistant Superintendent Mike Sanders reported that there was also a $35,000 increase over the SPLOST collections from August 2010. September marks the fourth consecutive month of increases, and of improvements over last year’s collections.
