Hardin County Schools board is hosting a hearing at 6 p.m. Tuesday at the district’s Central Office to discuss the proposed tax levy for the upcoming year.

District officials are proposing a 2-cent increase taking property taxes to 60.7 cents per $100 of assessed value of real estate and personal property. This proposed rate would bring in about $33.5 million.

Last year the district levied a rate of 58.7 cents per $100 of assessed value of property, which raised about $32.3 million locally.

The HCS board likely will vote on the tax levy at a meeting that follows the hearing.
