SLP School District Taxes Dropping in 2013

The School Board recently approved a levy for the upcoming year, which represents a 3.85 percent decrease from 2012 collections.

Taxes for residents of the St. Louis Park School District are going to dip a bit in 2013, based on a levy recently approved by the school board.

The Sun Sailor reports the district's operating referendum will increase by 2.55 percent as a result of increasing enrollment at the district, while overall property taxes will decline by 3.85 percent. That decrease is thanks to reductions in the district's health and safety levy, debt service levy and other changes.

The SLP School Board approved the $21.9 million levy for taxes payable in 2013 following a Truth in Taxation hearing earlier this month. That number is down from $22.8 million in 2012.
