After 2020, a 1/2 mil levy will fall off reducing property taxes by $8.74 annually for $50,000 appraised value. For $100,000 in appraised valuation property taxes will drop $17.50/year.
Out of the 14 districts in the area, BLSD has the lowest effective millage. We are at the 20 mil floor which is the lowest you can go.
BLSD has not received any new operating levies in over 40 years. Except for bond issues the district has not passed a levy since prior to 1976.
By law, these funds cannot be used for employee salaries and benefits.
Permanent improvement funds can only be used for the maintenance, improvement, or purchase of physical assets with an expected life of at least 5 years.
The money will be used to support the district’s 10-year capital spending plan which focuses on Building Security, Maintenance of Existing Facilities, Bus Replacement, Additional Parking at both buildings, Technology, and potentially the addition of new facilities (e.g. track).
The district’s bus fleet has 4 buses with over 200,000 miles. Buses operated daily average over 35,000 miles/year. To maintain a costeffective bus fleet the district needs to replace a bus at least every other year.
The district strives to be good caretakers of the taxpayers’ investment. A permanent improvement levy will ensure that the district’s facilities continue to be maintained independent of school funding imposed by the state.
The levy is for 3 mils. It is a property tax levy, which will cost the homeowner $52.50 annually per $50,000 appraised value (or CAUV for farmland). For $100,000 in appraised valuation the cost would be $105/year.
