Scott County schools superintendent hosts town hall meeting to discuss proposed tax hike

SCOTT COUNTY, Ky. (WKYT) - Many people in Scott County say it's time for a new high school in the county, but they can't agree on how to pay for it.

At a town hall meeting on Tuesday evening, Scott County Superintendent Kevin Hub talked about proposed funding for a new high school.

Hub is asking for an increase in the property tax to pay for bonds to cover the $48 million needed to build Great Crossing High School.

"I think there is a great need for a second high school. Community is growing so fast. Whether tomorrow, two years, or four years, we need to get in front of this," Hub told WKYT.

The school board will vote on the tax hike proposal on August 18th. Hub hopes to open the new school in August 2018.

There will be two more town meetings this month. There will be one on August 8th and another on August 16th. There will also be a public hearing before the school board meeting on August 18th.
