This site provides information for taxpayers of Grygla Public School, regarding how the district’s proposed referendum may affect property taxes. The site was prepared in cooperation with Ehlers, the district’s independent municipal advisor. If you have questions about the information on this site, please contact Ehlers using the information provided below.
The district will hold a special election on Tuesday, November 2, 2021, seeking voter approval of three ballot questions.
QUESTION 1 would renew its existing operating referendum revenue authorization in the amount of $211.93 per pupil, which expires at the end of taxes-payable year 2021.
QUESTION 2 would authorize the district to issue an amount not to exceed $1,995,000 in bonds for the acquisition and betterment of school sites and facilities, including without limitation, the construction of improvements to indoor air quality, boiler replacement, and other deferred maintenance projects at the District’s existing school sites and facilities.
QUESTION 3 would increase the school district’s referendum revenue authorization by $248.07 per pupil, which would result in a total renewal-plus-increase authorization amount of $460.00 per pupil.
QUESTION 3 is contingent on the passing of QUESTION 1, meaning it can only pass if QUESTION 1 passes.
For more information on how these funds would be used, return to the District’s website.
Approval of ballot QUESTION 1 would result in the extension of the current property taxes paid for this referendum, which are currently set to expire, starting with taxes payable in 2022, and the renewed tax levies would remain in place for 10 years.
Approval of ballot QUESTION 2 would result in a property tax change beginning with taxes payable in 2022, and the tax levies would remain in place for 20 years.
Approval of ballot QUESTION 3 would result in a property tax change beginning with taxes payable in 2022, and the tax levies would remain in place for 10 years.
