    Forgoing an opportunity to generate $162,927 in additional revenue, the Harrison County Board of Education opted for the compensating tax rate at its Tuesday meeting.
    The compensating tax rate of 47.3 cents per $100 of assessed property would generate $4,272,009 for 2015-16, according to school documents. This includes .1 cent for exonerations, which allows the school district to recoup revenue that was lost last year, said Assistant Superintendent David Case.

    A proposed slight increase in the real property tax rate failed to be passed by the Harrison County Fiscal Court.
    Magistrates voted Tuesday on the second reading of the ordinance, which would have raised the tax rate on real estate from 10.2 to the compensating rate of 10.4.
    The motion to approve failed after magistrates Brad Marshall, Scott Herrington, Sam Pierce and Bradley Copes voted against it.

    The Breds gained just one yard shy of 400 yards for the night and scored 35 points, but the defense could not contain North Laurel’s running game and gave up 449 yards in the 45-35 loss.
