TALLADEGA RESIDENTS DEFEAT PROPERTY TAX HIKE
Debra Davis
(334) 613-4686
January 29, 2003

Talladega County voters have defeated a proposed property tax increase for Talladega city schools by a 3-1 margin. The vote, which was held Tuesday, only drew about 14 percent of registered voters to the polls.

If approved, the proposal would have raised the city's property tax by $8 on every $1,000 of assessed value. Residents now pay $38.50 annually.

A school board member told the Associated Press that unemployment and uncertain economic times in the city were key factors in the defeat.

School officials say significant cuts will be made in the school systems budgets which could include personnel, athletic programs and some school closings.
