HANCOCK COUNTY, Ky. (WEHT) – A proposed nickel tax to help build a new Hancock County Middle School clears a hurdle.
School board officials voted Thursday to start the process on getting a possible nickel tax on the November ballot.
The board approved a similar nickel tax three years ago, but it was defeated by voters in a recall election.
Students are campaigning for the tax to help fund construction for a new middle school.
A public forum will be held at the middle school on August 15th.
