The Graves County Board of Education will have a special meeting at noon Wednesday, to vote on whether or not to proceed with a special election involving a proposed 18 percent property tax increase.

The tax increase would raise Graves County’s property tax from 37.5 cents to 44.4 cents in an effort to bolster county schools. The special election is a result of a petition circulated by county residents who don’t want the tax increase.
