Board Approves Replacement Levy for February 2012

Friends,


At the December 15th Board Meeting, the Board of Directors voted to put a school support replacement levy on the
February 14th ballot. The Board, after much discussion and reflection, will be asking the voters to replace the current levy at the same estimated tax rate the voters approved in 2009: $1.76 per $1000.00 of assessed value. In spite of a series of state funding cuts to the district, the Board is also sensitive to the financial challenges of many district property owners, and determined it was best for our community to hold the tax rate down to the 2009 rate.

Like a magazine subscription, our current levy is expiring next year. Again, this is not a new tax, but a replacement of an expiring tax, at the same tax rate approved in 2009. Ballots will be mailed to registered voters on January 27th, 2012, and must be returned/postmarked by February 14th.

Here is what the ballot will look like:
