Preliminary numbers show the 2019 assessed valuation of Franklin County school districts has increased by more than $92.3 million over last year.

The new assessed value of $1,879,215,090 will be reflected in the valuations of the 14 school districts with students who live within the county lines.

Commercial and industrial property is assessed at 32 percent; residential at 19 percent; and agricultural at 12 percent.

The higher valuations all around will allow the school districts to set their tax levies and in turn bring in more money than last year based on higher real estate and personal property values.
