Moline School District to raise tax levy
Property owners in the Moline school district will pay more in taxes in coming months if the tentative levy the school board adopted Monday night becomes official.
The board set a tentative levy of $38.1 million, up about $2.5 million from this year's. The main reason for collecting more from local taxpayers is to "help maintain a consistent revenue stream" for the district, said chief financial officer David McDermott.
The board will have a public hearing on the tax levy at 6 p.m. Dec. 12 at the district's administrative offices, 1619 11th Ave., Moline. The board is expected to take a final vote on the levy during its Dec. 20 meeting.
