Willmar School Board adopts preliminary levy
The preliminary levy adopted Monday by the Willmar School Board will be paid in 2021, and the money will be used during the 2021-22 school year.
WILLMAR — School property taxes in the Willmar School District are expected to change less than 1% in 2021.
At a meeting Monday, the Willmar School Board approved a preliminary levy payable in 2021 that is about $4,700 less than this year’s levy.
Money from the levy will be used in the 2021-22 school year. The $8.17 million levy includes funding for general education, community education and debt service. It also includes about $120,000 from a voter-approved operating levy.
Those amounts are set by the Minnesota Department of Education. They could be adjusted before the final levy is adopted after a public hearing in December.
The school levy makes up a part of the total property tax bill along with levies adopted by county and city/township governments.
