A school tax levy sampler


The Franklin School Board meets tonight to approve the final school property tax levy having tentatively approved a -0.4% levy back in August.  Here’s a sampling of the status of other school district levies as of today that I found from our area and other parts of the state:

 

CHIPPEWA FALLS:  +3.8%

BURLINGTON:  +3.7%

GLENDALE -RIVER HILLS:  +2.0%

MANITOWOC :  +1.7%

MPS:  +1.5%

SHOREWOOD:  +0.07%

OAK CREEK-FRANKLIN:  0%

BROWN DEER:  0%

GREENDALE :  -0.2%

GREENFIELD : -0.3%

FRANKLIN: -0.4%

MUSKEGO-NORWAY:  -0.77%

NEW BERLIN:  -1.0%

KENOSHA:  -1.0%

WHITEFISH BAY: -1.27%

PEWAUKEE:  -2.2%

LA CROSSE:  -2.6%

ARROWHEAD: -4.5%

WHITNALL:  - 5.8%

HAYWARD: -5.8%

ELMBROOK:  -7.6%

SOMERSET:  -8.4%

WASHBURN: -11%

LADYSMITH : -14.7%

 

Again, this is just a sampling. But the pattern is that most school districts are enjoying savings and tax levy reductions.

Damn that Scott Walker!
