Propositions could prove costly

Posted: Thursday, September 27, 2007

Proposition 3 - artificial turf fields - would require an annual tax levy of $12 per $100,000 of assessed property value. Proposition 4 - swimming pool - would require an annual tax levy of $34 per $100,000. Proposition 5 - elementary school renovations - would require an annual tax levy of $21 per $100,000. What does this mean for the homeowner?

If these three propositions are approved, it will cost $168 per year for a family that owns a $250,000 home (includes land and building). The cost goes up to $201 per year for a $300,000 home and $235 per year for a $350,000 home.

Keep this information in mind when you vote in the upcoming election on Oct. 2.
