This site provides information for taxpayers of Minneapolis Public 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 6, 2018, seeking voter approval of two questions.
Question 1 would increase the district's operating referendum revenue by $490.00 per pupil. The proposed authority will increase each year by the rate of inflation and be applicable for seven years, beginning with taxes payable in 2019. If approved, this will increase the district's revenue by approximately $18,040,000 for fiscal year 2019-20.
Question 2 would authorize a capital project levy of 2.249% times the net tax capacity of the school district. The revenue will provide funds for the purchase, installation, and maintenance of software applications and technology equipment, and for training and directly related personnel costs. The proposed capital project levy would raise approximately $12,000,000 for taxes payable in 2019, the first year it is to be levied, and would be authorized for seven years.
