Tax dollars up, tax rate down in new Boone Central Schools budget

Boone Central Public Schools proposed 2013-14 budget calls for a 3.6 percent increase in total property taxes.
The school district’s total property tax request is proposed at $7,246,453, which would represent an increase of $252,525 from last year’s total of $6,993,928.
A public hearing on the district’s new budget and tax rate will be held Thursday, Sept. 12, at 7:30 p.m. during the school board’s regular meeting in the Boone Central Middle School Library, Petersburg.
At the same time, the district’s tax rate will decline by nearly 17 percent, because of a large valuation increase throughout the district.
Details in the Sept. 4 Albion News and Petersburg Press Print & Electronic Editions.
