According to the school district superintendent, there will be no increase in the amount of the levy, which will expire on June 30, 2020. The levy is for $2.25 million each year for two years, for a total of $4.5 million. They need 51 percent of voters to make it all possible.
The levy will cost taxpayers $136.13 per $100,000 of taxable assessed value per year.
“We're hoping that we can help our patrons understand that these are necessary funds for us to continue to provide the support that our students have experience over the years,” said Superintendent Kenneth Cox.
Cox says the money would be used for facilities and maintenance, technology and the acquisition of buses.
