Operations and Staffing Levy Clarification
October 27, 2022
The District has received several calls regarding the language in the Voter Pamphlet for the renewal of our five-year levy. The Levy Renewal is at $0.47/$1000 of assessed value and is not $47/$1000 of assessed value. This is not a new tax.
Thank you for bringing this to our attention.
