Lower levy, higher dollars in school budget

General fund property taxes for Boone Central Public School will remain identical to last year and the year before, and the general fund levy will decline by more than 12 cents per $100 of valuation.
Special building fund property taxes will be levied near the maximum allowed, at .139925 per $100.
That budgeting pattern has been followed for the past three years at Boone Central Schools and will continue under the proposed 2014-15 budget.
The only budget increase, totaling $302,021 or about 4.1 percent, is in the special building fund.
