Correction on tax increase amount from school story
In last week’s top story in the News, it reported that the school board passed a resolution not to exceed $6.9 million on a 30 year bond to build a new high school at Gettysburg.
In the story it also reported that the top fourth of the assessed tax values in the county, at the maximum rate of $2.95 per $1,000, would raise those top levels around $7200 per year.
That was incorrect.
It would only raise those top levels an average of $2,700 per year.
The bottom 25 percent would see a maximum tax increase of around $46 annually.
Community meetings will be held before the bond issue comes to a public vote on April 9. Voters in the Gettysburg School District are encouraged to contact members of the school board with any questions or concerns regarding the new high school construction.
School board members are Kay Schmidt, Matt Cronin, Kevin Geditz, Brian Robbennolt, Kimberly Schweiss, Ryan Lake, and Paul Kellogg. The school superintendent is Tim Hagedorn, and principal is Wendy Smith.
