As you can see, the total levy being asked of the local taxpayers has increased this year from last year. The primary reason for this is the debt service increase made for the 2001 addition to the school. This account is self sustaining and rises and falls in order to meet our debt obligations for the long term debt. This debt is scheduled to be paid off in 2024.
