Upcoming Referendum Tax Levy

This entry was posted in News on by .

On Dec. 11, 2017, The Board of Trustees of the Oregon-Davis School Corporation approved the need for a referendum tax levy be placed on the ballot at the primary election on May 8, 2018. The public question to be submitted to the voters shall be:

For the eight calendar years immediately following the holding of the referendum, shall the Oregon-Davis School Corporation impose a property tax rate that does not exceed twenty-nine cents ($0.290) on each one hundred dollars ($100) of assessed valuation and that is in addition to all other property tax levies imposed by the Oregon-Davis School Corporation for the purpose of funding current and future educational and operational expenditures.

If the twenty-nine cent ($0.290) property tax rate is approved on May 8, 2018, the total referendum tax levy will not exceed twenty-nine cents ($0.290). The current referendum tax levy of nineteen cents ($0.190) will be eliminated and will be replaced by the approved twenty-nine cents ($0.290) property tax rate.

The School Board and the superintendent appreciate the community input. The input demonstrated the need for the school corporation to evaluate all cost effective measures involving all operations of the school corporation. With the partnership of the school corporation evaluating all cost saving measures and the taxpayers passing a twenty-nine cent ($0.290) referendum tax levy, the Oregon-Davis School Corporation will continue to provide the standards of excellence that is valued in the Oregon-Davis community.
