Learn More about the Levy Transfer
Vote April 6, 2021
Will the levy transfer extend the school district's debt?
The question says there will be an increase of the tax levy of $0.50 per $100.00 assessed valuation. Isn't that a tax increase?
Won't the debt be paid down at a slower rate?
If the levy transfer does not pass, will we see reduced taxes?
What percentage of a raise will this give to staff?
When was the last time BSD put a tax increase issue on the ballot?
Will the district use the transferred funds for anything else?
Shall Belton School District #124 of Cass County, Missouri (the “Belton School District”), be authorized to increase the operating tax levy ceiling of the District by $0.50 per one hundred dollars of assessed valuation for general operating purposes including increasing compensation for employees in order to attract and retain quality faculty and staff?
If this question is approved, the adjusted operating tax levy of the District is estimated to increase by $0.50 per $100 of assessed valuation. In connection therewith, the District expects to make a corresponding reduction to its debt service tax levy of $0.50 per $100 of assessed valuation. This would result in the estimated overall tax levy of the District to remain unchanged.
