This is good to see.
School District Superintendent Ted Neitzke said the tax levy and mill rate will be finalized by the School Board at its meeting Monday night.
“The mill rate will be going down by 54 cents per thousand of assessed value,” Neitzke said. “When there is a reduction in taxes it’s a victory for everybody.”
According to the district’s Director of Finance and Support Services Brittany Altendorf the 2014-15 tax levy for the school district will be $36.6 million. That figure is $1.6 million, or 4.21 percent less than the previous year.
