Hartford Schools to Decrease Levy

Looks like some decent work going on over in Hartford.

At the district’s annual meeting this week, district residents unanimously approved the district’s 2016-17 budget that includes a drop in the tax levy of about $39,000, but more significantly, a cut in the mill rate of about 26 cents per thousand. The owner of a home in the district valued at $200,000 could see a cut in their district tax bill of about $52.

“The drop in the levy, assuming 2.2 percent growth in property values, would decrease the mill rate from $6.52 per thousand to $6.36,” District Director of Business Services John Stellmacher said. “This is the sixth consecutive year the School Board has reduced the property tax levy.”

The Board has cut taxes by about $1.4 million in real dollars over the past six years. The cuts total $5.8 million when adjusted for inflation, Stellmacher said.
