Lyle School District #406 is asking for your vote on its General Fund Maintenance and Operation Levy on Tuesday Nov. 8. The purpose of this levy is to replace an expiring levy. The collection years are 2007 and 2008, the approximate levy rate: $1.66 per $1,000 assessed value. Levy amount is $285,000 per year. The 05-06 levy rate required $1.68/$1,000 assessed value in order to obtain sufficient funds to run the district and provide for the educational needs of our students. Due to an increase in new homes and property values, the levy committee found they are able to submit this new levy request at a lower rate of approximately $1.66/$1,000. Please note, although the rate will not increase above $1.66, due to continued activity in home construction and new businesses there is the possibility taxpayers will find the rate lower than projected. The levy funds will be used for student transportation, maintenance of building/grounds, utilities, non-employee related costs and extra curricular activities.

On behalf of the Lyle School District students and staff, Thank you for your support!
