Hoover voters joined voters across Jefferson County in overwhelmingly approving property tax renewals for schools today, according to unofficial election results.

With 99 percent of the precincts counted, there were 2,615 votes (93 percent) in favor of renewing a 13.9-mill property tax specific to Hoover City Schools, compared to 192 votes (7 percent) against the renewal.

Also, voters across Jefferson County strongly favored renewing two countywide property taxes totaling 7.5 mills. Those renewals were approved by about 93 percent of voters, with about 27,000 votes cast.

Those countywide property taxes are split up among all the school districts in the county, based on enrollment.

The Hoover tax and two countywide taxes combined bring in more than $21 million a year for Hoover City Schools, school officials have said.

Hoover schools Superintendent Kathy Murphy tonight said she is extremely grateful for all those people in Hoover and Jefferson County who took the time to go vote on a dreary day like today.

“It’s so important to Hoover City Schools, so important to all Jefferson County schools,” Murphy said.

Those three taxes were set to expire in 2021, and now they will be extended another 25 years to 2046.
