Fairhope Weighing School Split Options

No decision in Fairhope about what to do about exploring a school system split from the county Monday Night.

Members of the city Education Advisory Committee recommended that the city council commission a study to look at options for the city.

However the study would cost $40,000.

While some council members say they’re ready to start perusing a split, the mayor says it will be an uphill climb to generate enough money to do it.

“They just have a lot of fear of raising the taxes and where is it going to come from? Are we going to raise the property tax 10 mills or are we going to raise another sales tax. I just in good conscience can’t feel good about promoting that right now,” said Mayor Tim Kant.

The council will need to decide if they want to approve commissioning the study.

Monday they didn’t even decide if they wanted to put it up for a vote. They meet again July 13th.
