Oconee County School Board Officially Adopts Decrease In Millage Rate For Fiscal Year Underway

***Drop Of Half Point To 16.5 Mills***

The Oconee County Board of Education at its meeting on Monday officially adopted a millage rate of 16.5, down from the 17.0 from last year, and the lowest property tax rate collected for the county’s schools since 2003.

The millage rate vote was unanimous and expected, as the Board of Education had adopted a budget for the 2019-2020 Fiscal Year that began on July 1 based on the lowered rate.
