OLDHAM COUNTY, KY (WAVE) – Those living in the Oldham County School district might see an increase in property taxes.

Superintendent Will Wells said for the first time in three years the district is recommending a raise in taxes due to the district's budget,"We have had to cut about $3 million out of our budget this year, but then we also need to be able to generate a little bit more revenue because our expenses go up a little over a million dollars a year even if we do nothing."

Wells said the district will recommend a 4 percent hike.

Oldham County students head back for their first day of school on Tuesday, August 13.
