Vandalia-Butler School District Levy Increase (November 2011)
This measure was defeated
- YES 4,159 (45.42%)
- NO 4,997 (54.58%)
This measure sought to increase the current school property tax rate. The amount of the increase had been undecided by school officials noting that they would need additional money because of state budget cuts. School officials had planned to ask for further taxes in 2012 but state budget cuts came sooner than anticipated. Without the additional money school officials said that offering programs students want will be more difficult though budget cuts will still likely be made.
