9.98 percent increase now, cuts to come later in school year

The Sullivan school district will vote on a tax increase next week, but not before holding a truth-in-taxation hearing.
At last month’s board meeting, the district preliminarily approved a tax increase resulting in approximately $234,901 of new money. This would result in a 22 cent or less increase per $100 equalized assessed value, or EAV. According to Superintendent Brad Tuttle, this would mean for a home with an EAV of $50,000, there would be an increase of $23.47 on their tax bill for the district’s portion.Login or Subscribe to read the rest of this story.
