Not a new tax. Not an increase

The December 12th ballot will include four property tax RENEWALS for our students in Huntsville City Schools. These four taxes provide $37 million in local funds for our students. 

Remember to vote FOR our students by voting FOR the renewals.

Shop for everyone on your gift list this holiday and Amazon will donate to the Mountain Gap PTA!
