Mixed bag for Utah school budgets

< Previous Page

Salt Lake City School District » Officials are recommending a property tax increase to maintain school programs and provide a cost-of-living increase to employees. Under the proposal, homeowners would pay $12.65 more per $100,000 of home valuation yearly, raising an additional $3.6 million for the 2013-14 school year. The $3.6 million generated from the proposed property tax increase would cover $1.9 million needed to support current academic programs; $1.2 million for state retirement and cost-of-living increases for employees; and $450,000 to cover federal budget cutbacks.
