BUDGET RISES 4.46%, CUTS BACK ON TAX RATE

The Wilson School Board adopted a $19.3 million budget Tuesday for the coming school year that represents a $823,000 or 4.46 percent increase from this year.

The budget would reduce the tax rate by 75 cents to $24.34 per $1,000 of assessed valuation. Despite the tax rate decline, taxpayers still could pay more school taxes next year if the assessed value of their property increased.

Superintendent Michael Wendt said balloting on the budget will be from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. May 17 in the Richard Zipp Gymnasium on the district's Lake Street campus.
