G-R Happenings

September 9, 2012
Tim Kuehl - Superintendent , Reinbeck Courier

Physical Plant and Equipment Levy (PPEL):

The vote will be on September 11, 2012. Please take some time and cast your ballot.

These funds will be critical to the future of the G-R Schools. The funds will enable the district to continue to maintain our facilities at a high level, as well as provide our students with educational technology.

The Highlights:

Extends the current $0.67/$1,000 tax, which expires in FY 2014

WILL NOT increase the current tax rate of $11.13/$1,000.

Proposed uses to increase efficiency and function of buildings, as well as technology for student use.

Tax Rates at G-R:

FY 09 - $11.63

FY 10 - $12.11

FY 11 - $13.59

FY 12 - $12.14

FY 13 - $11.13

With valuations on the rise and enrollment, hopefully, stabilizing, tax rates should be steady at the current rate, to slightly declining over the next several years.

If you have questions, concerns, or suggestions regarding the VPPEL vote on September 11, 2012, please contact me, tim.kuehl@gr-rebels, 319-345-2712 so that we can discuss your thoughts.
