Pinellas' second budget hearing set for Tuesday
Speak now or forever hold your peace. The Pinellas school district's second and final budget hearing is set for 7 p.m. Tuesday.
To help support a $1.35 billion budget, the district is proposing a new property tax rate of $8.34 for every $1,000 of taxable property value, down from last year's rate of $8.35.
The board unanimously approved the new rate at the first hearing in July, pending the second hearing.
