Highland District Tax levy and
2020-21 budget approved
At the Highland School District's Annual Meeting held on Wednesday, Oct. 28, the tax levy and next year's budget were presented by Business Director Linda Hebgen. The tax levy was set at $1,354,655 down from $1,356,459 for 2019 - this is a change of about $1,800. Taxes from the school's standpoint are projected to decrease in Eden, the Highland Township, and the Village of Highland; however, they are predicted to go up slightly in Castle Rock, Wingville, and Pulaski. The mill rate was set at 11.41 per thousand of assessed value.
The budget was also presented at this meeting - it is a balanced budget with $4,523,350 in revenue and expenditures. There were no huge changes from the previous year, and for state aid, the district planned accordingly with the COVID-19 pandemic. The tax levy was certified and the 2020-21 budget adopted at the special Board of Education meeting that followed the annual meeting.
