THREE YEAR LOCAL OPTION TAX FOR SCAPPOOSE SCHOOL DISTRICT OPERATIONS
QUESTION: Shall the District levy $0.53 per $1,000 of assessed value for three years beginning 2004-2005 for operations? This measure may cause property taxes to increase more than three percent.
SUMMARY: This measure may be passed only at an election with at least a fifty percent voter turnout. This measure authorizes the Scappoose School District 1J to levy property tax in the amount of $0.53 per $1,000 assessed value each year for three years. All of the revenue from this tax measure will stay in the Scappoose School District. The taxes would be used to help finance district operations and partially alleviate reductions to staffing and programs. The funds raised by this measure are estimated at $500,000 per year.
