O.D. Tax Levy Passed; What’s Next?

Oregon-Davis Jr./Sr. High School

Now that the Oregon-Davis property tax levy has passed, what’s next?

Superintendent Dr. Steve Disney said that he’s relieved that the levy passed and now he and the School Board are looking forward to enjoying the end of the school year on a positive note and planning for the 2012-2013 school year. State budget projections are a little vague at the moment, but Dr. Disney is confident that with the passage of the referendum the numbers will fit their needs in order to successfully manage the school. The corporation continues to operate off of its Rainy Day Fund to conduct everyday business.

The tax increase of 19 cents per $100 of assessed value of properties will take effect in 2013 with the spring property tax statement, which will be payable in May.
