2019-20 Budget at a Glance

Adopted budget: $49,250,397

Tax levy increase from previous year:  $581,898, or 2%, which is below the tax levy limit of 2.74% that is calculated for 2019-20 through a prescribed state formula.

18-19 Budget at a Glance

Adopted budget: $48,636,823

Tax levy increase from previous year: 2.6%

Included two referenda that have NO COST to taxpayers:

  • Voter-approved change to the transportation facility project from repairing the old facility to constructing a new one. The district is able to do this by using the $3.4 million already approved by voters in 2016 and dedicating $840,000 to the project at its outset. The remaining cost will be funded through state aid.
  • Voter-approved referendum to establish a capital reserve fund to defray the cost of the project in future years. This will help when we have another building condition survey completed on our facilities in 2020.
