Nov 19,2021.  School board approved budget for next year, enrollment count shows decrease by 

    • Last month the Brown County School Board of Trustees approved a budget that is expected to not result in an increase to property taxpayers.

      The budget will not increase property taxes despite the district recently taking out an $8 million loan for upgrades at the high school and a continued decline in student
      enrollment.

    • “You are adamant about a consistent tax rate. Our tax rate is little bit over 68 cents and when this budget for 2022 is worked by the state in December, if the assessed values do not change by the county auditor, your tax rate is going to be 68 cents or lower,” Harris said.

      The tax rate will remain consistent even though the school district is set to see an
      increase in their funding due to an increase in the county’s assessed value.

      “Your tax rates will be where they are at now or lower,” Harris said.

      The assessed value for 2022 is $1,577,093,559. The assessed value that was submitted for budgets last year was $1,441,800,140, according to Smith.

      The AV came in extremely high. Brown County property values are up, up,up,”
      Harris said at the Oct. 14 meeting.

    • A three year capital projects plan is also submitted each year where a district has to indicate what items they intend to buy that will be more than $10,000, Harris said.

Last May, voters approved adding 8 cents per $100 of assessed value to the property tax rate. The new money would total about $1 million a year for seven years.

That was the second referendum voters had approved for the school district. The first, passed in 2010, was at a 1-cent rate that directly funded the CRC. Voters approved it for seven years.
