Willmar School District pushing drop in property tax levy


WILLMAR — Property taxes for the Willmar Public Schools are expected to be nearly 30 percent less in 2014, partly because the district is close to paying off the bonds for its 19-year-old high school.

The Willmar School Board adopted a $4.94 million preliminary 2014 tax levy Monday, a 27 percent decrease from the $6.77 million levy for this year. The board held a special meeting Monday before its regular workshop meeting. The preliminary levy was the only item on the agenda.
