NG opts to keep tax rate, pay off debt
NEW GLARUS - When the New Glarus school district prepared its 2013-14 budget, total debt expenditures were calculated to be down 84.4 percent, from $5.2 million to $806,000. But that will change. Voters went for a zero percent change from last year in the tax levy for the school district at its annual meeting Monday, Aug. 26, turning down a chance to reduce their tax rate - for the opportunity to allow the district to pay off more debt earlier, according to Jennifer Thayer, the district's new administrator.
