The Marion County School Board will ask area residents to up the millage rate to pay for school related costs. The proposal would add a one mill tax which would be nearly one dollar for every one-thousand dollars of taxable property value. Florida’s 89.1, WUFT-FM’s Stephanie Brown spoke with Marion County School Board Member Ron Crawford about the new school tax and what this could mean for Marion County taxpayers.
