MONROE - Monroe's tax rate for school purposes will be the lowest the district has seen since the 2006-07 school year. The school board approved Monday a total tax levy of $10.95 million for 2014-15, but according to Ron Olson, the district's business manager, that number will be adjusted for next week's board meeting now that information on pupil count, property valuation and state aid is in. The adjusted tax levy will be $10.91 million to be approved next week, Olson said, which is a 2.28 percent decrease from 2013-14.
