The first ballot is for the request for bond funds in the amount of $19,120,000 which is an increase of approximately .45 mills. For a home with a market value of $100,000 and taxable value of $50,000, the annual estimated increase would be $22.50 per year or $1.88 per month.
The second ballot is for the renewal of the non-homestead millage which is for operating funds for the district and has no cost to homeowners. Districts are required to obtain voter approval for non-homestead millage renewals. If this millage is not renewed, the district would have to continue to go back to the voters until approved. If this millage fails a second time, cuts would have to be made for the approximate $2 million in lost funding to the district.
