In less than a minute, the Cobb Board of Education voted to continue the district’s 18.90 millage rate during a special meeting Thursday.

With a 5-0 vote the board approved the millage rate that Cobb Chief Financial Officer Brad Johnson said should bring in about $339.5 million in countywide property taxes in fiscal 2014.

Board members Tim Stultz and David Morgan, who represent the two areas of south Cobb, were absent.

This rate is 2 percent, or $7.2 million, less than the amount of taxes collected in fiscal 2013.

Having watched the meeting online, you'd really have to wonder if Scamihorn had any clue as to what he had just voted for.

After the 5-0 vote, Scamihorn called for a vote to adopt the millage rate!
