Hononegah board members approve tax levy

Posted:

Hononegah School Board members take a vote to put a little more change in taxpayer pockets.

It may not be much but every penny counts when it comes to giving money back to those who support the daily operations of a school district.

The levy was first discussed at a meeting last month.  It was then, board members realized they had paid off some outstanding bonds.

The new levy drops taxpayer rates 33-cents.

Now the board requests tax payers approval for a $15.5 million dollar levy.  $4.2 million of that is taken up by new construction, the rest, Superintendent Lynn Gibson says is operational costs.

Board members in Hononegah voted unanimously to approve the levy after no one made comment during the public hearing.

"It provides us with additional tax dollars to run the operations of the school and to keep the educational programs functioning highly," said Superintendent Lynn Gibson.

The levy must be approved yearly.  The board had until December to do so but went ahead and set the rates.
