The pitch by Richland 2 school district for a milllage increase to the cap was denied by Richland County Council on Tuesday, June 7, 2022.
Remember that four trustees vote FOR it - Holmes, McKie, Manning, Caution-Parker.
Remember that three trustees voted AGAINST it - Agostini, Scott and McFadden.
And a lot of taxpayers spoke up and asked the County Council to deny it. Which the Council did.
Here's the response I received when I inquired today:
"No, County Council did not grant Richland 2's request for a millage increase. Like all of our millage agencies, they received a no mill increase. A no mill increase simply says if the value of the mill increases and additional revenue is generated therefrom, said agencies may receive those funds later in the fiscal year. Further, a no mill increase does not raise taxes at all."
Be sure to thank the Richland Councll Council.
