School board holds no-vote on tax hike

NATCHEZ — The Natchez Adams School Board has approved a $45-million proposed budget, but the board did not vote on a proposed tax increase.

The Natchez Democrats reports the proposed budget includes the 2.91 millage rate increase, but board member Benny Wright suggested Superintendent Anthony Morris cut half the cost of the tax increase from the budget.

Wright indicated a $300,000 cut would reduce the requested amount of additional taxes by half.

The board voted unanimously yesterday to direct the superintendent to make further cuts approaching $300,000 before the Aug. 12 meeting.
