Bell County School Board approves tax increase

BELL COUNTY, Ky. (WYMT) - The Bell County School Board has adopted a small property tax increase to pay for school renovations.

Thursday night, the board held a public forum on the proposal and then approved it.

It is called the "recallable nickel." Officials say it will add anywhere from $14 to $52 for most families.

The increase goes into effect in November.

All of the money will go towards facility improvements.
