For the fourth time since March 2012, voters in the Napoleon Area School District are facing a ballot request for new operating funds.
At next Tuesday’s election, they will decide the fate of a 2.9-mill, five-year property tax levy which would generate about $825,000 annually beginning in 2014. If approved, it would cost the owner of a $100,000 home about $101 more per year.
If past votes are any indication, it may be difficult to pass.
In May, voters rejected a 0.5 percent, five-year earned income tax for new operating funds. Last November, they turned down a 3.9-mill, five-year property tax levy. In March of 2012, they rejected a 0.25 percent income tax for operations.
