Tax Rate Hearing Set for Sept. 22

A hearing will be held at 7 p.m. on Sept. 22, 2021, at the Kearney School District Administrative Offices, 150 West State Route 92, at which time citizens may be heard on the property tax rates proposed to be set by the Kearney R-I School District. The tax rates are set to produce the revenues which the budget for the fiscal year beginning July 1, 2021, will show to be required from the property tax. Each tax rate is determined by dividing the amount of revenue needed by the current assessed valuation. The result is multiplied by 100 so the tax rate will be expressed in cents per $100 valuation.
