MARIETTA — The Marietta City School Board is set to approve the district’s reduced property tax rate of 18.682 mills tonight.

The public is invited to address the board in the district’s board room at 250 Howard St. in Marietta at 5:30 p.m. The board will cast its vote on whether to reduce the millage rate from 19.157 mills to 18.682 mills at 6 p.m.

The .475 reduction will be implemented in light of voters countywide approving SPLOST IV in March, which allows the city school district to pay off the $7 million, five-year-auditorium bond for Marietta High School.

The reduction could save the owner of a $100,000 home $17 per year; $200,000, $36; and $300,000, $55.

A second reduction in the millage of .712 mills is anticipated for 2014.
