Why doesn't county also reduce tax rate?

The Beaufort County School District volunteered to reduce its operations tax rate from the 100.55 mills approved in June to 97.45 mills. This 3 percent reduction results in less taxes on vehicles, non-owner occupied homes and businesses. The reassessment tax base for the school dit was increased after the tax rate was set in June.
