The Alcorn School District will hold a public hearing on Monday to discuss the proposed school district budget for the upcoming year.

At the required by law meeting set for 4 p.m., at the district office on Manpower Road, a proposed ad valorem tax effort will be considered.

“This is an informational meeting to show what shape the district is in when it comes to operational costs for the next year,” said Mary Coleman, board president.

The board plans to request the millage rate remain unchanged for the 2014-15 fiscal.

The district is now operating with a projected total budget revenue of $28,179,648. Of that amount, 21.52 percent or $6,065,449 is obtained through ad valorem taxes.

For the next fiscal year, the proposed budget has a total projected revenue of $28,271,682. Of that amount, 21.6 percent or $6,065,449 is proposed to be financed through a total ad valorem tax levy.

Ad valorem taxes are paid on homes, automobile tags, business fixtures and equipment and rental property.

“We hope those people interested will attend the public meeting,” added Coleman. “Those who would like to speak before the board about the ad valorem will be given the opportunity.”
