JCPS passes first property tax hike in three years

Property owners in Jefferson county will pay more taxes to help operate the county's public schools.  The JCPS school board says the increase is needed, because of huge cuts in state funding.

The vote will raise property taxes on a $100,000 home by $10 a year.  This is the first property tax increase in three years.  The hike will raise an additional $32 million to help meet rising fuel and utility bills.

The Oldham County school board voted not to raise property taxes.  Bullitt County will vote on a proposed increase on Sept. 9.
