Ballots hit the mail soon for Hoquiam School District M&O Levy
The Hoquiam School District is hoping that it’s taxpayers will again support a Maintenance and Operations Levy replacement for 2015 and 2016. The current levy collects about $2.7 million in property taxes annually, Superintendent Mike Parker said they haven’t raised that amount for the past 4 years “This year we have to raise it just one dime, it’s going to be $4.90 [per thousand],” reminding voters that this is the bi-annual M&O levy that supplements the school’s general fund. “It’s not additional money, the current levy that was approved a couple years back will expire at the end of 2014, so what we need to do is go back and replace it.”
