SCHOOL FUNDING: Tax increase affords SGCS projects
CHURUBUSCO — Residents of Whitley County’s Smith Township and Noble County’s Green Township saw their property taxes increase from last year to this year.This was due in part to the building project currently underway at Smith-Green Community Schools.Since tax reports sent to residents only show tax rates from the previous year, what they may not have realized is their rate did not go higher than the rate in 2011.“We told our residents their taxes would not go higher than they were two years ago,” said SGCS Business Manager Todd Fleetwood. “This is still true. While their tax rates did go up from 2012 to 2013, they are still lower than 2011.”To read the rest of this story, see the April 17 issue of The Post and Mail. Don't have a subscription?
