Mayor with City of Huntsville students

Citizens of Huntsville went to the polls today and overwhelmingly approved updates to Alabama legislation that reaffirms 15.5 mills in school ad valorem taxes. The successful vote “for” schools ensures Huntsville residents in Madison County, Morgan County and Limestone County pay equally to fund Huntsville City Schools.

“Today’s vote validates our City’s support of education,” Mayor Tommy Battle said. “A strong education system is paramount for a successful and thriving City, and this vote cleared the way for sustainable education funding to ensure Huntsville’s students have all the resources they need to be ready for college and careers.
