Property Tax Hike: No in Christina, Yes in Red Clay
There will be no property tax hike for those living in the Christina school district.
Voters turned down two proposals by as much as 4-thousand votes out of over 6-thousand cast.
The first plan would have raised taxes by 65 cent per $100 of assessed property value .which would have covered the district’s growing costs and staved off budget cuts.
The second would have raised taxes by $1.05 for $100 of assessed property value which would have paid for a boost to gifted and talented programs as well as summer school and extended days.
Meanwhile, Red Clay school district voters accepted a single plan by a closer vote of 63-hundred to 55-hundred.
The measure will raise taxes by 35 cents on $100 of assessed property value over three years.
It will help the district avoid cuts across its schools and include money to invest in student access to technology
