This site provides information for taxpayers of Inver Grove Heights Schools regarding how the district's proposed referendum will affect their property taxes. The site was prepared by the school district's municipal advisors, Ehlers, in cooperation with the school district. If you have questions about the information on this site, you may call Ehlers at the numbers listed below.
The district will be holding a special election on November 7, 2017, seeking voter approval of two questions.
Question 1 would revoke the district’s existing referendum revenue authorization of $562.13 per pupil and replace it with a new authority of $819.00 per pupil, resulting in an increase of $256.87 per pupil. The proposed authority would increase each year by the rate of inflation and be applicable for 10 years, beginning with taxes payable in 2018. If approved, this would increase the district’s revenue by approximately $984,000 for fiscal year 2018-19.
Question 2 would authorize a capital project levy of 2.1724% times the net tax capacity of the school district. The revenue raised by this authorization will provide funds for the purchase of textbooks, curriculum materials, musical instruments, classroom furnishings, equipment, technology and software for student achievement. The proposed capital project levy authorization would raise approximately $638,000 for taxes payable in 2018, the first year it is to be levied, and would be authorized for ten years.
