The Mars School Board has committed not to increase their tax millage rate for next year above the index set by the state.
The board made the decision by unanimous vote Tuesday night which locks them in to a maximum millage increase of 2.4 percent when planning the budget for the 2018-2019 school year.
This index figure is set by the state annually. It is not possible to raise taxes over that rate unless permission is granted by voters for specific exceptional circumstances.
Mars has not had a millage increase from the current rate of 99 mills in the past ten years.
