TRUSSVILLE — Trussville City Council approved Tuesday night a resolution in support of an upcoming tax renewal that has a significant impact on the city’s school system.
There are three separate taxes on the ballot in Trussville, a 2.1 mil county-wide tax, a 5.1 mil county-wide tax and a 5.1 mil tax specifically tied to Trussville City Schools. The county portion is a 30 year term and was last voted on in 1987.
The three taxes up for renewal are continuations of current ad valorem taxes that make up 43 percent of the school system’s local revenue.
“This tax money is crucial to our budget,” Jim Kirkland, financial adviser for TCS, said.
The vote is scheduled for March 7.
