The Coweta County School System is maintaining its millage rate of 18.59 for the 2014 property taxes. The county’s overall tax digest of property values, however, has gone up.

Many properties in Coweta County have been assessed at a higher value, and the school system expects to see an increase in property taxes received 2.74 percent over what they system would receive with a rollback rate.
