Council Set to Fund 20k for Gardendale High School AV Program

The Gardendale City Council will vote at its July 17th meeting on whether to approve Resolution 2023-109 that will provide funding to Gardendale High School in the amount of $20,164.33 for its Audio/Video Program and room sets.

The Council had previously approved, at its previous meeting, Resolution 2023-103 to provide funding for Gardendale High School for an Ice Maker and Bin for $9,953.95 and $4,588.07 to GHS for volleyball program expenses.

The local school funding comes from the Ad Valorem Tax account that many locally refer to as the 5-Mil Property Tax account. The tax generates approximately 1 million dollars per year and can only be used “for public school purposes.”
