Referendum Talking Points
In order to improve Charlotte County Schools, Charlotte County Public Schools (CCPS) will ask voters to approve a request for an additional 1 mill in property taxes for their operating budget via a referendum in November, 2018.
1 mill is one dollar for every $1000 of assessed value of the property.
