School taxes going up, another referendum in November
APP reports School taxes are going up. The BOE will vote on it tonight. The proposed local tax levy for 2016-17 is $95.37 million, up more than $4.4 million. For the owner of a home assessed at $250,000, that will mean an extra $294 in school taxes. In addition the District is asking for an additional $2 million dollars in a referendum this coming November asking voters to approve an additional tax levy of $2 million to lower the deficit. If approved, the additional $2 million tax levy for deficit reduction would add just less than $80 to that homeowner's total school tax bill.
