Voters have a choice on property taxes

Email

“Voting ‘yes’ on the operating levy will not raise your taxes.” Heard that a bunch of times and it is malarkey. I would suggest that a few people could be a bit more honest about representing the school levy issue.

Your property taxes will revert to previous levels the day the levy expires. A new levy is a new tax and will bring your tax obligation back up to about where it is now. So please be honest with people, if approved the levy does represent a tax increase. Voters have the choice continuing their property taxes at appropriate levels or increasing them to support school district programs.
