The Oysterponds school board is scheduled to discuss a possible tax exemption for local veterans again at its meeting Tuesday evening. 

The 6:30 p.m. hearing is a continuation of a public hearing on the issue from earlier this month. During that first public hearing, the school board said it would need more information about the rules of the exemption before voting on it, according to a previously published article.

There are currently 90 veterans living in the district who served in Iraq or Afghanistan who would qualify for an average of $427 in additional tax exemptions each per year, school officials said earlier this month.

The board will also hold its first budget workshop after the public hearing at 7 p.m., according to a notice on the district’s website.
