NORWICH – Residents of the Norwich City School District may see some relief in their school taxes this year, thanks to a resolution adopted Wednesday night by the district’s board of education.
When voters took to the polls on May 19, they approved a spending plan for the district which was estimated to increase the local tax levy by 2.72 percent. That increase won’t be necessary, according to Deputy Superintendent Margaret Boice.
At last night’s meeting, Boice recommended that the board authorize a tax warrant for the 2009-10 academic year which represented no increase over the previous year. Further, she explained that given a decrease in the proposed budget for Guernsey Memorial Library, the total warrant issued was in fact $17,067 less than the prior year, representing a slight decrease in the local tax levy.
