School board votes no tax increase

New Haven, Mo. – Thursday evening New Haven School District Board members unanimously passed a resolution to keep the current operational tax rate of $3.9448 and the debit service levy at 53¢, which comes out to an overall tax rate of $ 4.4748. (Current tax rate)

The overall tax rate of 4.4748 comes from combining the operational tax rate and debit service levy.  The 53¢ debit service levy has remained unchanged since voters passed a bound issue in 2008 and was the amount taxpayers were promised.  This amount is how the district is able to payoff the voter approved bound.
