Kittson Central School Board approved the property tax levy at $1,357,129.39 at its Wednesday, Dec. 21 meeting.
This amount is 4.03 percent higher than last year’s levy at an increase of $52,526.64.
“Despite the fact that our levy went up a bit I think most homeowners have seen a pretty significant decrease in their taxes,” stated Superintendent Bob Jaszczak.
The biggest reason for the change, he explained, was due to the valuation change in Enbridge Line 3 pipeline, which shifted the amount homeowners are taxed.
The proposed budget for the 2022-2023 school year shows deficit spending in the amount of $413,597. Proposed expenditures are $5,523,758 and revenue is $5,110,161.
“The numbers on here are not the numbers I like to see,” said Jaszczak. “I always end up being very conservative on the revenue side and very liberal on the expenditure side. So the final numbers are not going to end up in that range.”
