 SHEPHERDSVILLE - Despite several residents who voiced concerns, the Bullitt County Public School Board voted to implement a 4 percent tax increase when bills are sent out next month.

The 3-1 vote, with Gary Wooldridge in opposition, will allow the district to collect an additional $1.3 million in taxes.

Real property tax rates, including a double nickel for construction projects, will be 57.6 cents per $100 of assessed property. A $100,000 home would now generate $576 in taxes, an increase of $24.
