CULLMAN, Ala. – Cullman County voters can head to the polls tomorrow, Tuesday, March 19, from 7 a.m.-7 p.m. to vote on the continuation and renewal of an existing property tax allocation for schools. The tax is not new or an increase. State law requires the allocation be renewed through a referendum every 30 years.

See more here.

Cullman High School sent out a message to parents Monday morning, saying, "Cullman City Schools requests that you vote to maintain the funding allowed to CCS through the property tax. This is NOT a new tax."

Cullman Area Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Leah Bolin shared the following message with Chamber members: "On behalf of the Chamber’s Governmental Affairs Committee, I wanted to ensure our membership was aware of tomorrow’s special election on the renewal and continuation of countywide and district school taxes. This is an extremely important election that greatly impacts our area school systems. This is not a new tax, and voting in favor to renew means our schools will be able to continue providing a high level of education throughout Cullman County. See the attached one-pager for more information. A sample ballot is also attached. (See below)
 
"Please spread the word about this special election, and please remember to exercise your right to vote tomorrow. Polls will be open from 7 a.m.-7 p.m. If you’re not sure of your polling location, call the Cullman County Board of Registrars at 256-775-4750."
