Library tax OK

Posted By on Thu, Feb 26, 2009 at 11:43 AM

Circuit Judge Tim Fox today upheld the legality of putting a library tax approved in December 2007 on 2007 tax bills. A taxpayer suit had argued that the millage should have been limited to an amount set before the vote and should not have taken effect until 2008 tax bills.

Here's the judgment.

Eugene Sayre, attorney for the plaintiffs, said he'd recommend an appeal of the case. He said the judge ruled without mentioning among others, a statute that sets a deadline for setting millages. This means the tidy surplus that has accrued, $3 to $4 million, will remain out of Bobby Roberts' clutches for the time being.
