The new tag fees to provide funds for school resource officers aren't quite coming in as projected.
According to information received from the probate office, the first month of the car tax, revenues from the new tax were $33,096. At this rate, the tax will fall short of the estimated $600,000 required each year to provided for the school resource officers.
For February, so far the amount collected has been $36,312. That total was as of 10:45 a.m., April Johnson from the probate office said. There were many tag renewals still outstanding as Friday was the last working day of the month and she said there are many who actually pay March 1.
