Knox School Board votes 3-2 in favor of ‘nickel tax’

The Knox County School Board listened intently to what community members had to say about the recallable nickel tax last Thursday, but at the end of it all, there would be no final decision or vote taken until Monday.

As in the first vote taken on Aug. 26, the vote was once again 3-2 in favor of a 50.4 cent compensating tax rate with an additional 6.3 cent recallable nickel tax. Board members Dexter Smith, Merrill Smith, and Charles Merida voted yes. Board members Sam Watts and Gordon Hinkle once again voted no.
