OurView — Will Farragut residents eventually pay property tax to supplement county?


Round one is over and the downtown public library is one step closer to reality and a new West Knox County high school is one step farther away. The last vote is June 28.

Farragut and West Knox County residents should take a hard look at its representation in this matter.


A serious problem exists with overcrowding and nothing in the Knox County and Knox County Schools system budgets address the situation.

All of the District 5 county commissioners voted for the 500 percent increase in Wheel Tax. Commissioners Mark Cawood, Mike McMillan and Paul Pinkston voted against it.

Now County Commission has suggested that Farragut chip in more of its sales tax revenue — the life blood of Farragut — to support schools. Knox County Schools already receive 50 percent of the town’s local sales tax.

How long will it be before Farragut residents are forced to pay a Farragut property tax to supplement the county?
