County Council Turns Down School District Request for Increased Millage

Kershaw County Council  took no action earlier this week on the school district’s request for a 4.1 mil increase in operations millage.  Councilmen were told that the increase would be used to restore arts programs, increase athletic stipends and also increase the stipend nationally board certified teachers.  The request died for lack of a motion by any councilman.  This means the school district’s operationS tax millage remains at the same level as last year.
