Muskego — A proposed 2014-15 school budget calling for a slight decrease in the property tax levy will go up for a preliminary vote by the Muskego-Norway School Board on Monday, Aug. 18.
Then, it will go before voters at the district annual meeting at 7 p.m. Oct. 27 in the Muskego High School Performing Arts Center, W183 S8750 Racine Ave. By that time, crucial state aid numbers will be in as will the final enrollment count on which state aid is partly based.
The proposed 2014-15 tax levy is $32,504,984, which is down 0.34 percent from the previous year's $32,616,150.
The reduction is due to a combination of the way the state funding formula worked for the school district, as well as remaining fiscally responsible, said Julie Kelly, assistant superintendent of business and human resources.
At this time, there is no reduction in district programming, she said.
The general fund, considered the schools' operating budget, is proposed at nearly $54.2 next year.
