Council mulls budget during Monday workshop


Sumter County Council heard from Sumter School District Superintendent Dr. Frank Baker during a Monday evening budget workshop held at Sumter Fire Department’s Training Facility.

Baker asked for an increase of $2,045,746 from last year’s District budget, based upon a 1.27 millage rate increase – the maximum eligibility allowed by law – to come up with a new millage rate of 162.13 on an estimated mill value of $211,200 for 2016.

Baker’s brief presentation was for informational purposes only and no action was taken.
