Many citizens of Rockdale County are upset that school millage rates will be raised for the second year in a row.
Rockdale's school tax rate was already over the statewide cap. This is a special condition approved by a handful of voters more than four decades ago.
We feel we have an excellent school system here in Rockdale County. But as in any business, no matter how good it is, because of these tough economic times, cuts are being made to insure that a good business survives. We want no less in management of school expenses from our elected school board.
On August 9 at 7 p.m. there will be an informational forum held at the Epiphany Lutheran Church on Georgia Highway 20 to discuss the referendum that has allowed the Rockdale County School system to exceed the state wide 20 mil cap.

We would hope that members of the school board would be in attendance to answer any questions or discuss any issues you might have.
