What a difference a summer vacation can make.
Last spring, prior to the end of school, the voters in the Preston School District approved a $250,000 levy to get needed operating funds caused by a short fall created by lack of state monies.
Late this summer the district trustees from the same district rejected the school tax levy passed in the May election.
Taxes for district property owners should decrease this December and June due to the increase in funding by the state legislature.
“Taxpayers paid their last payment in July (2011) for the levy passed in 2010. By rejecting the levy, taxes will decrease in December,” superintendent, Joel Wilson said. (See the full story in The Preston Citizen.)
