PLEASE NOTE: the PDF below offers two scenarios, dependent on results of pending State legislation.
Scenario 1 (page 4) describes failure of the pending legislation. This would mean continuing to apply the mill rate to motor vehicles. This will result in a mill rate increase of 2.55%.
Scenario 2 (page 5) describes approval of the pending legislation, where property taxes will not be applied to motor vehicles, but the State will supply to the District a grant of $187,149 to cover some of the shortfall in revenue. This will result in a mill rate increase of 5.27%
This legislation should be resolved by the May 10th Budget Meeting; The District will only submit to the voters the appropriate scenario.
