Pierre Property Tax Levy Decreasing

Monday, July 17, 2017

The Pierre School Board last week approved the budget for the upcoming school year.

Pierre School Superintendent Dr. Kelly Glodt says there are a lot of aspects to the budget, but the thing he hears the most is questions about the property tax levy. He says that the levies will decrease for those in the school district/

Glodt says the property tax levies are set by different funds in the school district. He adds that there is no conversation whatsoever about any opt-out.

Just about every municipality enforces property taxes on residents, using the revenue to fund programs and services for the entire community, primarily schools.
