Clintonville taxpayers will see a small decrease in their school district taxes this year.
Voters approved a tax levy of $6,283,147 at the district’s annual meeting Monday. Last year’s levy was $6,283,431. The proposed levy assumes no increase in equalized valuation, which which won’t be known until October.
The estimated tax rate will be $11.41 per $1,000 per assessed valuation, the same as last year. A homeowner with a home valued at $75,000 can expect to pay $787 in school taxes this year, compared with $799 last year.
About a dozen teachers and administrators along with a half dozen citizens attended the annual meeting.
The proposed 2015-2016 budget for the general fund and special education fund was set at $18,243,734.
Factors affecting the tax rate include a slight increase in the debt service levy and an increase in the community service levy, which are largely offset by an increase in state aid, according to Superintendent Tom O’Toole.
