Hudson/DouglasNow.com Coffee County School Superintendent Morris Leis, standing, discusses the current tax digest with school board members Friday, August 1.

The Coffee County Board of Education revealed Friday during a discussion of the tax digest at a special called meeting that the current millage rate will be rolled back.

Residents shouldn't get too excited, though, as the rollback will only account for a difference of about 0.01% from the previous year. The rate dropped from 16.214 to 16.203 or, to put it simply, a diferrence of about $9,000.

"Obviously, there is no real drastic action in the millage rate," Chairman Bryan Preston stated.

Of other particular interest, Superintendent Morris Leis noted the school system has experienced some loss of revenue this year, mainly attributable to the costs of vehicle maintenance and purchases.

Following regular business, the school board adjourned to executive session to discuss personnel issues and returned to the regular meeting to approve their decisions during the executive session. The board did not disclose what had been discussed.
