Milton School District residents can expect tax increase
Milton School District residents will likely be paying more in taxes next year.
Superintendent Bernie Nikolay says voters at the annual meeting this week approved a $33 million budget, and a 10% increase in the tax levy. This increase represents the maximum allowed by law. School board members have expressed a concern, if they don't tax to the max, they'll lose potential revenue under state limits in the future.
The proposed tax levy is $8.09 per $1000 property value, or a $.74 increase over this year.
