UT Property Tax Levy May Go Down Slightly
Thanks to federal pandemic money and rising property values, the cost of living in the United Township School District may go down slightly next year.
This week, the board of education gave its preliminary approval to a new tax levy, with final approval expected next month.
District Comptroller Janice Roome says the owner of a 100,000 dollar home would pay about nine dollars less next year.
"For the majority of the funds it's the increase in the property values. We do have a lot of facilities-type projects going on that are federally funded, ESSER money, resulting from the pandemic. So we don't have to raise any more taxes or any more bonds in order to do those projects."
ESSER stands for Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief Act. And she says this money will help pay for improving the hvac system at UT and to re-model the old library into classrooms.
