PATEROS – The school district board of directors voted unanimously to approve a levy replacement resolution at its regular meeting held via Zoom on Oct. 25. Resolution 2021-309 will replace the district’s current four-year levy that expires in 2022 with an Educational Programs and Operations Levy (EP&O) proposed to appear on the Feb. 8, 2022 ballot.
The EP&O levy would provide approximately the same educational programs and operation purposes according to meeting minutes. It is a “four-year levy with an annual tax collection amount of $602.000,” said the meeting recap. “Cost per thousand would be based on property values, the current estimated rate is $2.50 per $1,000 assessed value.”

“The resolution certifies the amount of excess property taxes to be levied in year 2021 and collected in year 2022 for the district’s general fund and debt service fund,” the meeting recap said.
