TONASKET – The Tonasket School Board set their levy rate at $2.39 per $1,000 of assessed property value, which will bring in $860,550 for the next two school years.
“This is a replacement maintenance and operations levy,” Catherine Stangland, board chairwoman, said. “Although this is a rate increase of 17 cents, assuming the Levy Equalization Act dollars remain the same, this levy actually does not replace the levy we passed two years ago. The state has already eliminated $100,000 from our budget this year, which we had already budgeted. We are anticipating another $200,000 in cuts.”
