Forsyth County residents have one chance remaining to express their opinions on the proposed millage rate for county schools.

Forsyth County News reports that nobody came to the first two public hearings on the subject, which were held at 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. on July 10. The third and final meeting will be held at 5 p.m. on July 17 at the Forsyth County Board of Education and Professional Development Center, an hour in advance of the Board of Education's vote on the matter.

The school board plans on leaving the millage rate unchanged, which means slightly increased taxes due to a more robust property tax digest. The rollback rate, which would generate the same amount of money, is a 0.172 percent increase in taxes.
