The Geneva School Board is putting forth a 52.45 million dollar budget proposal for voters to decide on when they head to the polls May 16th.
There is a suggested 26 cent increase in the property tax rate, going from 21 dollars 11 cents this year to 21 dollars and 37 cents per assessed thousand of valuation for the next school year. The biggest cost is salaries, coming in at 20.2 million. Benefits are the next highest category at 12.6 million. The package will need a simple majority to pass, since it does not exceed the District’s State Mandated tax cap.
