Residents in the Dublin City School District will be asked to approve a multifaceted tax increase for the district in November
Voters will decide whether to fund the construction of new buildings and the renovation of old buildings, among other district initiatives.
School board members made it official July 9, when they unanimously approved a final resolution for a combination $195 million bond issue, a 2-mill permanent-improvements levy and a 5.9-mill operating levy.
If approved, the tax issue would mean district residents would pay a total of $1,834 annually per $100,000 of valuation, said Brian Kern, the district treasurer. Property owners are paying a tax bill to the district of $1,627 per $100,000, he said.
The funding request would be an increase of $207 per $100,000 of valuation because the bond issue and improvements would be “no-new millage” issues.
The funding would help the district pay for more than $115 million in facilities, including two elementary schools, a middle school and high school additions. Additionally, the improvements levy would fund an estimated $95.08 million in building infrastructure needs.
