NEW KNOXVILLE — New Knoxville Board of Education members unanimously voted in a special meeting Monday night to move forward with the first steps to continue a 1 percent, five-year income tax levy passed in 2009.
While the levy wouldn’t change what the voters were currently paying, the revenue accounts for approximately $461,000 — an estimated 11 percent of the total school general fund. While the current income tax doesn’t run out until the end of 2014, board members thought it best to consider getting it on the ballot as soon as possible.

ST. MARYS — St. Marys schools will receive an additional $612,000 in 2014 and $646,000 in 2015 according to the state’s newly minted biennial budget, bringing the school out of deficit spending, said Superintendent Shawn Brown this morning.
“We’re going to take a look at it, the treasurer’s going to look at it, and see if it has strings attached,” Brown said. “It doesn’t make up for the number of reductions over the last few years.”
