Voters within the Sioux Central Community School District will decide on a physical plant and equipment property tax levy in the upcoming November election.
If approved, the levy would be used to finance a future auditorium, renovated ag space, and growth in the district’s academic area. The levy, which would take effect for the next ten years, would increase Sioux Central’s PPEL revenues to 500-thousand dollars per year. Property taxes would be raised approximately one-dollar per thousand dollars of taxable valuation.
According to the Sioux Central School Board, the district’s overall tax rate won’t exceed $12.25 per thousand dollars valuation if the measure is approved. The tax rate would only increase by slightly more than two-and-a-half percent over the next decade.
A simple majority is needed for the levy to pass, which will be on the ballot in the November 7th election for voters in Albert City, Linn Grove, Peterson, Rembrandt, Sioux Rapids, and Webb.
