Summary of question:
|“||This measure may be passed only at an election with at least 50 percent voter turnout.
In March of 2009 voters approved renewal of the local option levy at $0.75 per $1,000 of assessed value to support Sisters School District. It expires June 2013. This measure would renew the levy expiring June 2013 for five years at the same rate approved by voters in 2000, 2004, and 2009. Sisters School District would use the funds from the levy to maintain current programs and staffing levels provided by the expiring levy. The current levy provided approximately 9% of the School District’s annual operating resources over the past four years. This measure would maintain the existing rate of $.75 per $1,000 of assessed property value. The proposed rate would generate approximately $1,211,975.75 in 2013-2014, $1,239,851.19 in 2014-2015, $1,268,367.77 in 2015-2016, $1,297,540.22 in 2016-2017, $1,327,383.65 in 2017-2018, for an estimated total of $6,778,972.83. The owner of a home assessed at $172,024 (average assessed value of residential property in the district) would pay $10.75 per month or $129.02 per year.
