School taxes will go down for residents

Email

Independent School District 196 has continued its trend of shrinking levies.

At its regular meeting Monday night the District 196 School Board approved a $73,784,528 levy for taxes payable in 2013. That is down 2.72 percent from last year's $75.85 million levy and down $5.6 million from four years ago, when the levy was $79.37 million.

More than half of the district's levy - roughly $47.5 million - comes from voter-approved levies.
