Board Keeps Tax Rate Unchanged

The Paducah Public Schools Board of Education voted unanimously to keep the district’s tax rate steady at their meeting on September 21, 2020. Prior to the meeting an open hearing was held to hear public comments regarding the tax levy proposal. There were no public comments made.  

The General Fund tax levied in fiscal year 2019-20 was 86.4 cents per $100 on real property and 86.4 cents per $100 on real property. The same rate is proposed for the 2020-21 fiscal year.  
“Since I have been on this board, I have seen the overwhelming support our schools receive from the citizens of Paducah,” said board member Janice Howard. “The pandemic has affected all of us. Some in the community have been negatively impacted financially because of the inability to work and run their businesses, through no fault of their own.”

“I felt it was important to be supportive of the people who have always supported our schools when considering the tax rate and making the decision to leave the rate unchanged.”
