Neihof adjusts numbers, recommends tax stays flat

By Todd Martin

Shelby County Public Schools Superintendent James Neihof, who two weeks ago proposed a half-cent increase in property taxes for schools, on Thursday will present the Shelby County School Board with an unprecedented recommendation: no increase.

“No one was more disappointed than me when that compensation rate came back from the state with an increase in the tax rate,” he said of the state-set, .5-cent increase. “The board clearly wanted to do everything it could to not raise taxes this year, no one wanted to see that rate come back higher.”
