Trigg County Schools Receiving $2.3 Million

Trigg County, KY – The Trigg County School System is receiving $2.3 million from the federal government. The money will make up for county land that can't be taxed because it's federally owned. The Cadiz Record reports that the district was notified last fall that it would receive increased federal impact revenue known as Payment In Lieu of Taxes (PILT). The federal government owns the Land Between the Lakes and Fort Campbell which make up almost a third of Trigg County. School officials will decide how to use the PILT money after the Kentucky General Assembly approves a state budget.
