Lower operating budget, tax request for Boone Central Schools

Boone Central School District will have a lower operating budget and a lower overall property tax request for 2021-22 based on the preliminary budget.
The proposed budget includes a one percent tax reduction in the general fund, a two percent increase to support the bond fund, and a 45 percent increase in the special building fund for the coming year.
The net impact on the district’s total property tax request will be a reduction of $266,411 or about three percent.
