Horicon School Board Adopts 2019-2020 Budget

(Horicon) The Horicon School Board approved the 2019-2020 district budget this week. The $11.3-million dollar document brings a tax levy of $4.4-million, roughly $100-thousand dollars less than last year. District Superintendent Rich Apple says the mill rate of $10.08 per one-thousand dollars of assessed value is a 90-cent decrease from the number homeowners saw a year ago. Apple says there were two figures driving the lower tax rate, student enrollment which increased by 28 students and equalized property values which also saw a jump. Apple says the adopted budget puts the district in a good place for the upcoming year. He notes there are no big projects in the budget outside of building construction which is being paid for through referendum dollars.
