BURTON SCHOOL BOARD APPROVES BUDGET AND TAX RATE


The Burton School Board on Monday night held a public hearing on the proposed budget and tax rate. There were no members of the public present at the meeting. Trustees did adopt the same tax rate of $1.17 per $100 valuation as last year; $1.04 for Maintenance and Operations and $.13 cents for Debt Service. Willy Dilworth of the Washington County Appraisal District indicated that with an increase in property values throughout the county, taxes would increase slightly with the adoption of the previous tax rate. Dilworth noted that the Average Market Value of Residences for 2014 was $134,833.00 and current market value is $146,812.00, about a 9 percent increase.

The board approved a $4.9-million budget, which is an increase of around $100,000 from the past year.  Superintendent Dr. Edna Kennedy says the budget increase is due to personnel and in keeping with the current rise in economic expenditures.  Kennedy discussed two new positions, a part-time Maintenance Coordinator and a Central Office Administrative Assistant.  The next regular board meeting is scheduled to be held at 6:30 p.m. on September 21, 2015 in the district administration offices, 701 N. Railroad Street.
