Starkville Daily News - - FRONT PAGE - By LO­GAN KIRK­LAND news@starkvilledai­lynews.com

The Ok­tibbeha County Board of Su­per­vi­sors ap­proved to in­crease ad val­orem tax mill­age rates from 121.74 mills to 123.57 mills for the next fis­cal year.

Ok­tibbeha County is now op­er­at­ing with a to­tal bud­get rev­enue of $90,290,741. The rev­enue the county ob­tains from ad val­orem taxes is $41,093,398 or 45.51 per­cent.

The in­crease means res­i­dents will pay more in ad val­orem taxes on their home, au­to­mo­bile tags, busi­ness fix­tures and equip­ment and rental prop­erty.

“I think that the in­crease is rea­son­able based on con­sid­er­ing all the other things go­ing on,” Pres­i­dent of the Board of Su­per­vi­sors and Dis­trict 2 Su­per­vi­sor Orlando
