On August 4, Smithville School District will ask voters to consider two questions.

If question 1 is approved, the no-tax-rate increase bond issue will result in extending the current tax levy sunset from 2038 to 2040. Funds will go toward completion of Phase 1 of the district’s Master Facilities Plan.

If question 2 is approved, ten cents per $100 of assessed valuation will be shifted from debt services levy to the operations levy. This will not change the current levy amount paid by tax-payers only the fund in which the money is deposited and ultimately would free about $250,000 annually to increase funding for a range of student, staff and district needs amplified by coronavirus.
