District mill rate to increase by 6.3
Before a voting audience of less than 50 people, the school district adopted a budget of $50,109,362 for the 2008-09 school year.
The taxpayer portion of that budget is $27,845,258. That translates into a new mill rate of $7.48 per $1,000 of property valuation, or $1,496 on a $200,000 residence, about $92 over last year. That represents an increase of 44 cents over last year, a 6.33 percent increase.
