TRUSSVILLE — The Trussville City Council at a canvass meeting on Tuesday unanimously approved the final results of the Feb. 25 tax referendum.
After unsealing one provisional ballot, the final results were 2,813 people voting for the seven-millage property tax increase, while 1,935 voted against it.
The seven additional mills will fund the construction, renovation and operation of two new community elementary schools in the city, one in the former high school and middle school on Parkway Drive and the other near the Magnolia Place subdivision.
Seven additional mills in property taxes will cost Trussville residents $70 per year on homes appraised at $100,000, $140 per year on homes appraised at $200,000 and $210 per year on homes appraised at $300,000.
